Cupcakes (or fairy cakes as the British would call them) revolutionized the way cakes are baked. They first appeared sometime in the 19th century, though no one knows for sure how or where this sweet treat exactly originated. Before there were cupcakes, cakes were made by weighing (not measuring) the ingredients. Cupcakes were the first cakes to be made by measuring the ingredients using a cup, hence the name.
Over the years, cupcakes have become more and more popular. One reason for this is the recent economic fall, which forced many food establishments to close down. Specialty cupcakes have become the cheaper (and cuter) alternative to cakes, which many people find too expensive.
Nowadays, people enjoy eating cupcake and its countless variations. Some of the most popular flavors are mocha, vanilla, lemon zest, carrot, banana, pumpkin, peanut butter, and red velvet.
