NATIONAL CUPCAKE DAY – December 15 | National Day Calendar

Each year, December 15th also recognizes National Cupcake Day. The cupcake was originally known as the 1-2-3-4 cake because the recipe called for 1 cup of butter, 2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour, 4 eggs, and also 1 cup of milk, and 1 spoonful of baking soda.

Even the word cupcake sounds like a miniature celebration. They’ve been known by other phrases that make us put our hands together in glee, too! For example:

  • Fairy Cakes
  • Patty Cakes
  • Cup Cakes (different from Cupcakes (one-word)

Someone must have wanted to surprise a loved one with a sweet, single-serving treat when they invented the cupcake. One of the first recipes for a cupcake can be traced back to 1796. A recipe notation for a cake to be baked in small cups was written in American Cookery (by Amelia Simmons). Don’t you wonder if she made them for her children or grandchildren? 

The earliest known documentation of the term cupcake shows up in 1828 in Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats. The cookbook was by Eliza Leslie. Maybe she just liked individual servings. 

Bakers originally baked cupcakes in heavy pottery cups. Today, some bakers still use individual ramekins, small coffee mugs, larger teacups, or other small ovenproof pottery-type dishes for baking their cupcakes. They do make a beautiful presentation for these miniature cakes. 

Today, cupcakes are an artform. Bakers create elaborate decorations and displays utilizing a variety of ingredients. Whether they’re the centerpiece of a wedding, birthday, or anniversary cupcakes satisfy everyone’s sweet tooth. Colorful and fun, these single-serving delights offer a pleasing option when planning any celebration.

The single-serve cake makes it convenient for serving and sharing. Today there are a variety of recipes and just as many flavors to choose from.

HOW TO OBSERVE NATIONAL CUPCAKE DAY

When it comes to celebrating National Cupcake Day, you are only limited by your imagination. For the bakers out there, it is time to make a batch of your favorite cupcakes. Some bakers may want to step out of their routine and bake something new. Have you been hankering to spice up your cupcakes a bit? Sometimes we need an explosion of flavor or a little extra sparkle in our baking. 

Since cupcakes are such a simple recipe, it is also an excellent time to invite the kids into the kitchen. They will love mixing and decorating their individual cakes. That’s what’s so special about a cupcake. 

Another great way to celebrate National Cupcake Day is by sending a shout-out to your local bakery. They will be baking up batches of colorful and flavorful cupcakes! Be sure to stop in and pick up a dozen to share. Let them know how much you appreciate them, too.

National cupcake day is a great way to promote small businesses to sell baked goods. This also gives reason for people to eat cupcakes and other treats. Personally, I think these national holidays are so-so, but whatever floats the boats of those who sell such items and love to celebrate these holidays.

National cupcake day is a great to support many small businesses. By offering free samples, discounts, and promotions can attract more customers and boost more sales. This makes the customers want to try and buy more baked goods.

With national cupcake day it’s a beneficial way for bakeries that are not as well know to sell their goods and gain some status. I think that little national days like this also give an extant to let people do things they wouldn’t do on the regular per say like if you really want to cut how much sweets you eat, well you have National Cupcake day where it’s an exception to eat a few cupcakes for the day without judgement. This also gives light onto silly little events and lets people get the recognition they deserve as well.
