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.

Butter is creamed with sugar and eggs and slowly married with the flour mixture to create a dense and delicious cake. Egg-Leavened Cupcakes: The egg-leavened cupcakes are divorced from any fat element. Instead, they receive their volume from stiffly beaten egg whites. Think sponge or angel food cake. These cakes are of the lighter consistency, both texturally and with regard to caloric intake. One-Bowl Cupcakes: The name of these kinds of cupcakes should suggest the method for baking. With all ingredients in one bowl, the one-bowl cakes are made with shortening as the essential fat. The fat solids in shortening allow for the cupcakes to be mixed easily and well, producing an airy cupcake for the mindful eater. Chiffon Cupcakes: The chiffon cupcakes are a delightful combination of butter and egg-leavened cupcakes. Utilizing both egg yolks and whites, in addition to the fat element of butter or shortening, the chiffon cupcakes are often used in the gourmet scene. It is obvious that cupcakes are regarded in high esteem, considering all of the many wonders associated with their existence. Whether you’re eating homemade cupcakes which you consider the best cupcakes ever, or even a store-bought treat, cupcakes are a food practice that satisfy even the sourest of individuals.
