National Chocolate Cupcake Day – October 18th

What’s your favorite cupcake flavor?  I’m not really a huge sweets fan, but if I had to choose, my favorite flavor would be chocolate.

The first known mentioning of cupcake can be traced to 1796 when a notation of “a cake to be baked in small cups” was written in American Cookery by Amelia Simmons.  It is believed that the name was derived from the fact that cupcakes used to be baked in cups.
