有 趣的是：多年后，当地厨艺爱好者开始采用量杯计算方法制做杯子蛋糕，食谱简单易懂，只采用一杯牛油、两杯糖、三杯面粉、四粒蛋，所以也称为“1234蛋 糕”。这些小蛋糕与传统牛油蛋糕相比，只采用一半份量的牛油及鸡蛋，所以比较不油腻，制做成本也相对性比较低。
蛋糕烘好之后，装饰能够使 蛋糕看起来更加可口。小蛋糕装饰最吸引人之处在于没有任何限制，没有所谓对与错。你可以和孩子们采用任何糖果、糖霜、巧克力米、椰丝、果酱等，随心所欲地 在蛋糕上任意涂鸦，发挥你的创意。
Baking Cupcakes for Fun
A cupcake is a small cake designed to serve one person, frequently baked in a small, thin paper or aluminum cup.
The term "cupcake" was first mentioned in 1828 in Eliza Leslie's Receipts cookbook. In previous centuries, before muffin tins were widely available, the cakes were often baked in individual pottery cups, ramekins, or moulds and took their name from the cups they were baked in. This is the use of the name that has persisted, and the name of "cupcake" is now given to any small cake that is about the size of a teacup.
In later years, when the use of volume measurements was firmly established in home kitchens, these recipes became known as 1234 cakes or quarter cakes, so called because they are made up of four ingredients: one cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, and four eggs. They are plain yellow cakes, somewhat less rich and less expensive than pound cake, due to using about half as much butter and eggs compared to pound cake. The names of these two major classes of cakes were intended to signal the method to the baker; "cup cake" uses a volume measurement, and "pound cake" uses a weight measurement.
Decorating cupcakes is a great family activity. Part of the fun is that there are no hard and fast rules to follow. Similarly, there are no right or wrong ways to decorate cupcakes. By using icings and candy, along with other objects like plastic trinkets, sprinkles, colored sugar or coconut, it's easy to customize and decorate cupcakes quite easily. Enjoy!!
