A Little Cupcake History: What’s in a name? Well, for cupcakes, a lot! 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.
