A cupcake is pretty much a small version of a “normal” cake. One thing that is different is that they are of course smaller and more convents. Since you can pick them up and eat them with your hands they are great for parties. No extra dishes from the plates and forks that you normally need with traditional cake.
Cupcakes come in a variety of sizes and flavors. Mini-cupcakes are particularly versatile because you can make them fit any shape you want. They can be placed in uniquely-shaped boxes and given as party favors.
Are cupcakes -just- small cakes? Not really, the main difference is that it is easy to make every cupcake different. You can decorate them in many different ways.
Cupcakes for every occasion
Here are a few ideas
You can make a batch of nice heart shaped cupcakes for Valentines’ Day. If you make them yourself you loved one will like them that much more.
In the same way, you can give out unique Christmas souvenirs to your neighbors by sending out mini-cupcakes frosted in red and green, and placed inside a box shaped like a Christmas tree, a candy cane or a snow man.
At Christmas you can make tree, snowman, or star cupcakes for a nice Christmas touch. You can decorate the cupcakes with candy canes or small gingerbread men.
At birthdays you can spell out Happy Birthday or the person’s name in cupcakes. You can put one or more candles in each cupcake for a great surprise.
