A cupcake is a single serve cake which gets its name from the cup-like shaped mold it is baked in. An American invention, cupcakes use the same ingredients as a regular cake and can be decorated just like any other cake with icing, frosting, toppings and sprinkles.

Beer Flavor

While cupcakes come in a variety of flavors, chocolate is one of the most popular flavor available. Many people make their chocolate cupcakes special by adding gourmet ingredients such as coffee, pumpkin, beer and whiskey.

In the 19th century, cookbooks referred to another type of cup cakes - cakes whose ingredients were measured by cups. This reference is no longer much in use.

How to Celebrate?

Here are some delicious ways to celebrate chocolate cupcakes:

  • Eat one (or two, or several) chocolate cupcakes.
  • Bake up a batch of chocolate cupcakes and share with family, friends and co-workers.
  • Gourmet up your cupcakes. What about making bacon, Nutella or caramel chocolate cupcakes?

Did You Know…

…that cupcakes are known as fairy cakes in Britain and patty cakes in Australia.
