Until the turn of the 20th century, cupcake pans were virtually unheard of forcing bakers to use more formidable cups for baking, unless they wanted to bake their small cakes into loaf form. Using hearth ovens, which needed longer cooking times for larger cakes, caused bakers to seek other ways to bake their cake and still have time to eat it. With the advent of the cupcake, not only were bakers able to achieve shorter cooking times, they were also able to change the way they prepared them once the baking part was finished. No longer did bakers need to create larger, heavier cakes. With the production of the cupcake, people could slake their desire for something small and sweet.
On some days, the perfect cupcake is described above. On other days, when one is starving and wants a quick treat to devour, the two day old cupcake, for some unusual reason hits the spot. It has sat on the counter top just long enough to hard a bit more giving it a more substantial feeling. Biting into it feels more like biting into a hearty piece of bread. The frosting gives you the feeling that you are biting into something similar to a chocolate bar because it has had time to harden a bit giving the cupcake still another additional dessert treat quality. It becomes more of a candy rather than a baked good giving rise to the nice flexibility its changing texture can take on, becoming just another variation of the perfect cupcake.
While no one is quite certain where cupcakes came from, it is known that they made an appearance in the United States sometime in the 19th Century. Called Fairy Cakes in the United Kingdom, cupcakes revolutionized how cake was made and mothers across the land lauded the blessing.
