Cupcakes, or fairy cakes as they are known in England and Ireland, are small individual cakes. Their name comes from the small pottery cups like ramekins or small coffee mugs they were baked in prior to the creation of the muffin pan. Their earliest mention can be found in Eliza Leslie's Receipts cookbook from 1828.
Cupcakes can be served individually, or as part of a pull-apart cake in which cupcakes are placed together on a pan and decorated as one cake and then pulled apart to serve.
