Top birthday cupcake recipes of all time

As a beginner, baking a big birthday cake can seem overwhelming and put you off the task for good. But it need not be so. Why not try your hand at baking mini cakes or – as they are better known – cupcakes? There are a ton of easy cupcake recipes that are delicious and only take a bit of your time.

The Backstory to Cupcake Recipes

Cupcakes seem like an obvious creation today, but ever wondered how they came about? Truth is, the history of these little cakes cooked in tiny molds goes back to the eighteenth century! It required the genius of the woman credited with being America’s first cookbook writer, Amelia Simmons, to imagine this delicacy.

Simmons’ ‘cup cake’ recipe was published in her 1796 cookbook, and not surprisingly it was very different from how we think of cupcakes today. Think of a mix of flour, butter and sugar with a glass of wine and a glass of rosewater. Ummm, yes that’s what you would’ve got if you wanted a cupcake four hundred years ago!

A Birthday Cupcake for Every Birthday Boy and Girl

Simmons’ cupcakes have come a long way. We certainly don’t need wine or rosewater to make the best batch of cupcakes ever! Her creation set the ball rolling, and today there is a delightful world of cupcakes that is waiting to be explored.

Like they say, there is a cupcake for everyone, young and old. Here we bring you a host of birthday cupcake recipes. Think chocolate cupcakes, rich and moist. Or red velvet, with its cloud of cream cheese that melts in your mouth as soon as you take the first bite. Or, Oreo cupcakes with their oh-so-satisfying crunch in every mouthful.

Next time there is a birthday ringing, dust off those mini molds and cupcake pans and get baking. We promise cupcakes aren’t scary.
