These miniature cakes have been around in the United States since the 19th Century, according to punchbowl.com.
"Prior to cupcakes, ingredients used in baking were primarily weighed rather than measured," according to the website. "These delightful treats shifted the art of baking from weighing to measuring ingredients."
Cupcakes were once called one-two-three-four cakes due to their recipe, punchbowl wrote. That recipe included 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.Where is your go-to place for cupcakes near Diamond Bar or Walnut?
