The single-serve cake makes it convenient for serving and sharing.  Today there are a variety of recipes and just as many flavors to choose from.

NATIONAL LEMON CUPCAKE DAY

Celebrated annually on December 15th, National lemon Cupcake Day is for those who enjoy this refreshing baked item.

The first mention of the cupcake can be traced as far back as 1796 when a recipe notation of “a cake to be baked in small cups” was written in American Cookery by Amelia Simmons.  The earliest documentation of the term cupcake was in “Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats” in 1828 in Eliza Leslie’s Receipts cookbook.
