Life’s a cupcake!

Years ago cupcakes were earmarked simply as either the treat Mum baked for the classmates on your birthday… or a staple party plate favourite. But not anymore. Cupcakes are very much the flavour of the month and they’re now very big business indeed. It’s certainly interesting to look closer at how this humble mini cake has grown so massively in style and popularity…


Here are some things that you may not have known about the metaphoric rise of the little cupcake…

  • The TV Show “Sex and the City” is credited for influencing the resurging rise of the cupcake
  • Cupcake specialty stores have opened to be extremely successful and drawing massive business
  • Traditional cake occasions… such as weddings and milestone birthdays… are now serving gorgeously decorated cupcakes as an easy portion-specific alternative
  • Cupcakes come in so many varieties that cake lovers are able to enjoy a range of flavours in lower-guilt portions
  • Believe it or not, a Beverly Hills bakery has installed a cupcake ATM where for $3.5o your cupcake can be dispensed from a hole in the wall. There have been reports of 1000 cupcake transactions per day and queues of 50 people deep!
  • The first printed cupcake recipe appeared in 1828 and is acknowledged to Eliza Leslie, a pioneering American cookbook author
  • Cupcake popularity is an international phenomenon not restricted to the USA – the UK and Australia are keen cupcake consumers!
