According to "Baking in America" by Greg Patent, this was revolutionary because of the tremendous time it saved in the kitchen.<br />- Another note: “cupcakes” were also rumored to have been called "number" cakes because of a mnemonic device for remembering the recipe: One cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour and four eggs plus one cup of milk and one spoonful of soda. This formula became known as the 1-2-3-4 cake, and today's cupcakes are mostly still made with similar traditional cake ingredients.<br />
  19. 19. History ContinueD<br />B) the “cup” name could have also originated because of the practice of baking cake in small containers – i.e.: the size of a tea cup.  <br />Another interesting bit of history, it was 1919 when Hostess introduced the famous snack cupcake, but it didn't become the cream-filled, squiggle-topped Hostess Cup Cake we know today until 1950.<br />
