Cupcake. Monday , February 05th , 2018 - 15:51:30 PM
Prior to the introduction of the cupcake to the kitchens of America, cakes were made by weighing the ingredients. Cupcakes were made by measuring the ingredients for the first time. It has been suggested that this is perhaps where the term "cup cake" originated, since everything was measured in cups. Other origins of the name have also been offered, such as the fact they are baked in a cup but at one time, cupcakes were also called "number cakes". This name originated from the recipe, whereby it required "...once cup butter, two cups sugar, three cups flour, four eggs..." At one time, recipes called for cupcakes to be "...baked into little tins."
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.
Finally, a few words in regards to the convenience of cupcakes vs cake for your wedding. Most venues provide an adequate stands for cakes, while more often than not you ’ll end up having to buy or hire a cupcake stand (until wedding venues catch up). But then, there ’s the obvious convenience of cupcakes: they are portions in themselves. If your catering arrangement is all inclusive, it might be of no use to you. It does make difference, however, for those of you who prefer to keep your wedding a more personal affair, yet don ’t want your mums spending hours cutting, serving and tidying up.
