It’s National Cupcake Day! Cupcakes have been an American
culinary icon since the 19th century. Prior to cupcakes, ingredients
used in baking were primarily weighed rather than measured. These
delightful treats shifted the art of baking from weighing to measuring
For many years, cupcakes were known as one-two-three-four cakes
because of their recipe: one cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three
cups of flour, four eggs, plus one cup of milk and one spoon full of
baking soda. This formula is still the traditional cupcake recipe that
many people use today. Fun fact: the world's largest cupcake was
displayed in July of 2009 at the Covent Garden Real Food Market in
London. This cupcake was about 4 feet in diameter and weighed over 330
pounds! It also contained 200 eggs and took over 50 hours to make.
