National Chocolate Cupcake Day- October 18th 2016

Good Morning Foodies,

Today 18th October is marked as National Chocolate Cupcake Day. National Chocolate Cupcake Day is celebrated annually on October 18. This is the day for Chocolate and dessert lovers! Cupcakes have also been known to be called: Fairy Cakes.

Happy Chocolate Cupcaking lol :-)

Here are today’s five thing to know about Cupcake:
  1.  Cupcake liners do more than make it easy to remove them from the pan. Traditionally, sides of tins are greased for easy removal, but also floured because the batter needs to have something to cling to. A cupcake liner takes care of both.
  2. On August 15, 2009 GourmetGiftBaskets.com broke the world record for largest cupcake ever made. The cupcake was 1,224 pounds, 4 foot tall by 10 foot wide, and had 2 million calories.
  3. One of the most popular cupcake bakery’s in the U.S. is Crumbs in New York City. They have reported $23.5 million in cupcake revenue last year alone!
  4. The first mention of a cupcake recipe goes as far back as 1796. Amelia Simms wrote a recipe in “American Cookery” which referenced, “a cake to be baked in small cups”.
  5.  However, it wasn’t until 1828 that the actual word cupcake was used by Eliza Leslie in her cookbook “Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats”.
