A cherished treat for generations



Cupcakes have been a cherished treat for generations, with a history dating back to the 18th century when they were known as “number cakes”. These early cupcakes were made in individual molds, with ingredients measured by the cup, hence the name. Over time, cupcakes became more accessible and widely popular, especially at celebrations and community events.

Today, cupcakes come in a vast range of flavors, sizes, and shapes. From the traditional chocolate and vanilla to the more adventurous flavors such as lavender or Earl Grey tea, there is something for everyone. Cupcake shops and bakeries worldwide offer a plethora of creative and delicious options to satisfy every taste bud.
