An American design and invention, the cupcake is a mainstay of American baking. First described in 1796 by Amelia Simmons, the term “cupcake” didn’t appear until the 1828 cookbook by Eliza Leslie. The book was titled “Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats”. Fast forward almost two centuries and the cake and cupcake industry continues to grow valued $754.8 million in 2021.
