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.
So you’re planning a birthday party for your little toddler and are looking for really creative cupcakes you can make. Or maybe you just feel like baking cupcakes one day! Either way, there are some really adorable kids cupcakes out there. Before you start looking for cute kids cupcakes, remember you’re baking these cupcakes for toddlers; and toddlers are picky eaters! You may think I’m crazy for telling you this. There isn’t a child on earth who wouldn’t want to eat a cupcake, right? I believed that too until the day I put a cupcake in front of my 18 month old daughter and she didn’t want to eat it! So it’s important to keep this in mind when baking kids cupcakes.
Mix the batter correctly. Mix just long enough that the ingredients combine well. Otherwise, you can end up changing the texture of your cupcakes; over-mixing the batter usually makes the cupcakes tough. Use paper liners in your cupcake tin. This makes removing the cupcakes from the pan easy and prevents the cupcakes from drying out while waiting to be served or eaten.
