As you bite into the cupcake it does not crumble, but stay together firmly. It is not as tough as a fudge bar, but not as light as a piece of angel food cake. Its perfected consistency lies somewhere between the two, thick enough so that every bite can be savored meaningfully. Because it is moist each bit melts easily in the mouth and leaves a light stickiness on your fingers. It is rich, but not overpoweringly so. It is best with a tall glass of milk, maybe two, to accentuate the decadence of its flavor.
Though cupcakes only recently developed an upsurge in popularity, causing a number of bakeries to specialize in just cupcakes, it was in 1919 when Hostess developed the precursor to the Hostess Chocolate Cupcake. The rich, creamy filling and chocolate icing was popular with consumers and a love affair was begun. Conveniently baked into a single serving, cupcakes provided a quick snack and permitted people to nibble on them whenever they wished. In addition, they were sinfully delicious to but their small size allowed them to feel good about not over eating.
The perfect cupcake...in your mind you visualize it. It is moist, it is straight out of the oven and it fills the air with heavenly scents that one cannot help but submit too. It is your favorite flavor, whether it is a vanilla, white, chocolate, or other tantalizing cake base. It is decorated with your favorite toppings: flavored icing, sprinkles; the works. It peels easy from the wrapper, but leaves a light lining of cupcake remnants on it to later be licked away. The frosting is generously applied. It covers the entire top of the cupcake a few times over. The frosting is sweet, but light. It is a decoration, but it also adds to the overall quality of the cupcake. It is not hardened or clumpy. It is smooth, sweet and easily licked off or eaten with the cupcake itself. Light sprinkles delicately adorn it as well. Giving it a simply crunchy sweet texture, one that just perfect offsets the smooth, batter of the cake base of the treat.
