A cupcake (or fairy cake) is a small cake designed to serve one person, usually made in a small paper cup container. As with larger cakes, frosting and other decorations are usually applied.

Cupcakes are often served during a celebration, such as children's classroom birthday parties. They are a more convenient alternative to cake because they don't require plates, utensils, or dividing into pieces. Cupcakes were first invented in the early 1800's.

A simple cupcake uses the same ingredients as most other standard cakes - incorporating butter, white refined sugar, eggs, and flour. These are the main ingredients of a cupcake.

The name "cup" cakes or "measure" cakes is believed to have developed because of the use of the practice of measuring the ingredients using a standard-sized cup instead of the previous practice of weighing the ingredients. The fact that these little cakes were baked in cup-shaped muffin baking containers gave double-meaning to the term "cup cake", and was probably the main factor for "cupcake" becoming the U.S. standard term.
