National Cupcake week coincided with a Cupcake order for a Festival themed wedding cake order. I was delighted to be commissioned by another business to create these cupcakes and both they and their client were delighted. It made me think about where the cupcake originated (History does fascinate me). Of course we have had Fairy Cakes here for many years – remember these ones made by Gran made with the sliced off tops cut and replaced as butterfly wings.
No party in my youth was compete without these 🙂
Cupcakes however are an American invention and could date back to the 18th Century when cakes were actually cooked in small cups. They now come in all shapes and sizes………
This week I am supporting a Macmillan cancer charity with some cupcakes for their Big Coffee Morning. Why not look out for your favorite design and send me your pictures on here or facebook.
