15 December is celebrated each year as National Cupcake Day, an unofficial national holiday. The cupcake was originally known as the 1-2-3-4 cake because the recipe called for
1 cup of butter, 2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour and 4 eggs along with 1 cup of milk and 1 spoonful of baking soda. The single serve cake makes it convenient for serving and sharing. Today there are a variety of recipes and just as many flavours to choose from. Why not whip up a batch and share them with a friend or two?
