Cupcake. Monday , February 05th , 2018 - 12:26:09 PM
Cupcakes are now common in grocery store, pre-made and pre-iced. The baking aisle is filled with a large variety of cupcake papers, beginning with paper thin and progressing to a firm, rounded edge made of cardboard. So popular is the cupcake small artisan bakeries, creating nothing but cupcakes, have begun to spring up across the country. Selling for an average of $30 to $35 a dozen, they are dear, but if you want cupcakes that are head-turning, sometimes paying someone to decorate them in a unique or unusual way is the best way to go. A more recent trend, gaining in popularity, is cupcake towers in lieu of a more traditional wedding cake.
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.
’A cake is a piece of art which a cupcake could never be ’, this comment challengingly cropped up in a blog the other day. Is that really so? Art ’s boundaries are nicely democratic and so, are subject to individual definition. It can be argued that a cupcake can easily be as much of an art as any cake. True enough. If you are a decorator worth your salt, the chances are, you might one day create a cupcake, that is 10 times ’artier ’ than the guy next door ’s cake. In practice, though, I surprise myself in agreeing with the above sweeping generalisation after all. Cake is bigger, so one can get more detailed with it, make more of a story out of it. Besides, there ’s only one cake as opposed to 100 + cupcakes. In theory, it is possible to make them into hundreds of mini wedding cakes. But in practice they ’ll be less ’edible ’ and quite unaffordable. That said, if you do want to take your cupcake order beyond the commercial level, and are prepared to pay extra, it ’s worth mentioning it to a stylish cupcake maker and they might just surprise you!
