Cupcakes date back to the 19th Century where they were commonly known as "number cakes." These bite-sized cakes were accounted for according to the number of cups required for the necessary ingredients. Another theory for the origin of the cupcake name is the vessel in which the cakes were baked. Ramekins, tin or small clay cups were said to have contained the essential ingredients for cupcakes upon their initiation. Oddly enough, bakers today still choose to bake these fun treats in the same containers. Further down the line, cupcakes were referred to as "1234 cakes" or "quarter cakes" due to the four ingredients that were required for the recipe. Butter, sugar, flour, and eggs were the essential ingredients for these plain yellow cakes; a lighter and less expensive counterpart to the pound cake. By the 21st century, cupcakes have grown synonymous with birthday celebrations, particularly that of children. The small and personal size of these sweet cakes makes them perfect for children, possessing a dessert that fits perfectly into the palm of one’s hand. However, it wasn’t long before the adult scene caught onto this viral demand for a personalized cake. After a hit HBO series popularized a Manhattan "cupcakery," niche-driven cupcake joints popped up all across the globe. These treats went from simple and youth-oriented to gourmet and age-unspecified in a hot minute.

While they are always sweet, they are certainly not all the same in consistency, mouth feel and richness. Cupcakes will vary in texture based on the ingredients, or batter, used to bake these beauties. Let’s consider some batters: Butter Cupcakes: Most baked goods possess a fat element of some sort. Typically, the fat element is butter or shortening. The butter cupcakes are obviously of the butter persuasion. The batter for butter cupcakes will be rich, as butter is a natural and rich fat. Butter is creamed with sugar and eggs and slowly married with the flour mixture to create a dense and delicious cake. Egg-Leavened Cupcakes: The egg-leavened cupcakes are divorced from any fat element. Instead, they receive their volume from stiffly beaten egg whites. Think sponge or angel food cake. These cakes are of the lighter consistency, both texturally and with regard to caloric intake. One-Bowl Cupcakes: The name of these kinds of cupcakes should suggest the method for baking. With all ingredients in one bowl, the one-bowl cakes are made with shortening as the essential fat. The fat solids in shortening allow for the cupcakes to be mixed easily and well, producing an airy cupcake for the mindful eater. Chiffon Cupcakes: The chiffon cupcakes are a delightful combination of butter and egg-leavened cupcakes. Utilizing both egg yolks and whites, in addition to the fat element of butter or shortening, the chiffon cupcakes are often used in the gourmet scene. It is obvious that cupcakes are regarded in high esteem, considering all of the many wonders associated with their existence. Whether you’re eating homemade cupcakes which you consider the best cupcakes ever, or even a store-bought treat, cupcakes are a food practice that satisfy even the sourest of individuals. Eat a cupcake and you will certainly consider this sweet delight one of the best treats to eat at any time.

Some of the most popular cupcake decorations are grated coconut, gum drops, piped flowers and figures, shaved chocolate, whimsical designs created with candies - and of course sprinkles. Filling Cupcakes to fill a cupcake, cut out a cone from the top. Then place a teaspoon of filling inside. Before replacing the top, cut off its cone (since the space it filled is not filled with filling). Cupcake Cakes also called pull-apart cakes, these are perfect for birthday parties and youth events. Each guest pulls off a cupcake. Serving’s a cinch and clean-up’s, well a piece of cake. And a great plus with little ones - everyone gets the same size serving! You can sculpt a cupcake cake into just about any shape you can imagine: numbers (for birthday ages), sports (footballs, team logos and names, etc.) holiday figures, flowers, Easter baskets and bunnies, cats and dogs, well you get the picture. The shape doesn’t have to be exact (and probably won’t), but the decorating will add the realism. Here’s how it works: Bake cupcakes in double liners (for extra strength). Arrange baked cupcakes on a covered, sturdy cake board. Play around with this until you get the shape you want. Staggering works best, and keep them close together. Dab icing onto the bottoms of the cupcake liners, returning them as you do to their original positions. The icing will, once it dries, help hold the cupcakes in position. Crumb-coat. This is optional. Thin some icing or make a glaze. Spread over all the cupcakes. Crumbs will show, but that’s ok. When it dries, the crumbs won’t be swept up into your final coat of icing. When the crumb coat has dried, smooth your regular icing over the whole cupcake cake Decorate.

(Actually, for many people who can’t bake, this is their real problem. They don’t take the time to measure accurately.) Follow the recipe and measure your ingredients correctly. It’s important for the ingredients to come out in proper proportion to one another based on the recipe. Also, don’t forget: When a recipe calls for eggs, it usually means large eggs unless otherwise specified.

While some of the upscale cupcake boutiques use expensive ingredients like Madagascar Bourbon vanilla, you don’t have to go all out to create cupcakes fit for a special event like a wedding. Just be sure to use fresh and natural ingredients, such as butter and fresh fruit instead of margarine and frozen.
