Cupcake History – NaTiCaKeS
The term ‘cupcake’ was first noted in E. Leslie’s ‘Receipts’ of 1828. During this time ingredients began to be measured in cups because it saved timewhen hearth ovens took a long time to bake large cakes. Before muffin tins, tea cups were used to bake individual cakes. Prior to the cupcake, ingredients were measured by weight and the cupcake brought about ingredients being measured and not weighed for the first time. Cupcakes were also called “number cakes” because of the measurement of ingredients: one cup butter, two cups sugar, three cups flour, four eggs and one cup milk and a spoonful of soda. Through the 1900’s cupcakes became popular treats for children due to their ease of baking. Today cupcakes are not only a hit for kids but for adults as well with bakeries all over the land dedicated just to this wonderful delight.

SO the skinny…PSSSSSTTTT..can’t tell anyone but Nichole Sloan the owner of Naticakes mentioned she has some things up her sleeve…(nati-bites) and she is working on shipping now…she is fully aware you all are drooling waiting to order!
