Cupcakes take their name from the teacups used in the olden days to measure out the ingredients. In the late 1700s, American bakers measured ingredients by weight (i.e., ounces, pounds, etc). To do it properly, you really needed a scale.
Food historians tell us that the earliest cupcake recipe dates back to 1796. It was a huge hit because it used teacups for measuring (1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 cups flour, 4 eggs, 1 cup of milk, and 1 spoonful of soda). Some people called them “number cakes” or “1-2-3-4” cakes but, no matter the name, these “cup cakes” saved an incredible amount of time in the kitchen.
A Cupcake for Every Occasion
Cupcakes make excellent desserts, and adults love them too! Wow the crowd at baby and bridal showers, office potlucks, retirement parties, holiday events, and even at elegant dinner parties and weddings. They’re exceptionally convenient because you don’t need a plate or silverware to eat them.
Some of our favorite cupcake varieties include:
- Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cupcake – These nutty masterpieces are created with rich chocolate cake and chocolate/peanut butter truffle filling. We top them off with fluffy peanut butter icing. It’s hard to go wrong with anything that combines chocolate and peanut butter! They are irresistible!
- Salted Caramel Cupcake – Invented in French pastry shops in 1980, the taste sensation of salted caramel is a delightful combination of salty and sweet. You’ll love the delicious salted caramel centers inside our moist vanilla cupcakes. And, of course, the caramel icing and more salted caramel make a good thing even better!
- Vanilla Bean Cupcake – Vanilla lovers will appreciate the intense, pure flavor and satisfying aroma of our buttery vanilla bean cupcake. We fill it with a vanilla bean-flecked cream, and top it with a luscious vanilla-flecked icing and a white chocolate coin.
- Chocolate and Red Velvet Variety Pack – If you can’t decide, give your guests a choice. Enjoy our variety pack, which features our customer-favorite Chocolate Cupcakes (moist, rich and dark, with a creamy bittersweet truffle filling) and the classic Red Velvet cupcakes (a deep red, moist cupcake iced with cream cheese-buttermilk fluff frosting).
