The first mention of a dessert with the qualities of a cupcake was in American Cookery in 1796, and the first time the term "cupcake" was used was in 1828. There were two different definitions of cupcakes—also known as cup cakes—at that time. One type of cupcake was so named because it was baked in a container that looked like a cup. These were pottery cups, molds, or ramekins, and predated muffin tins. This is the definition that is still in use. The other type of cupcake was so named because of its recipe, which was measured out by the cup, instead of being weighed (that type of cake appropriately became the pound cake). For instance, a recipe may have contained a cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, as well as eggs. These were sometimes baked in cups, but were also often baked in tins. Cupcakes use the same basic ingredients as regular cakes, and can be topped with frosting and other decorations, and can be filled as well.

bdijack, Sorry but Cake is evil. Cakes goal is to make everyone join him and eat Cake. Pie was the first dessert and created all other desserts. Pie is good. Cake got jealous of Pie being the first and decided to go out of his way to ruin all the good Pie had created. This is why Cake is evil do not trust him. For all that join cake will be thrown into the great deep fryer.

Steph, I’ll second that I can’t stand frosting!
Black Widow (Missy)
A little frosting is ok, but I’d scrape most of it off.

Black Widow (Missy), there’s always the right amount left when you scrape it off with a spoon
