The 4 Fun Cupcake Facts That You’d Want to Know
To celebrate National Cupcake Day, we’ve come up with these fun facts about your all-time favorite dessert:
1. Cupcakes were first mentioned in 1796.
Believe it or not, Americans were already eating cupcakes way back in the late 1700s. This sweet treat was first mentioned in 1796 in a cookbook entitled American Cookery by Amelia Simmons.
2. Cupcakes used to be called “number cakes.”
Did you know that before cupcakes were called cupcakes, people used to call them “number cakes” or even “1234 cakes”? The first cupcake makers used these names so that they can easily recall the portions of the ingredients that are used to make them. To make a cupcake batter, they used 1 cup of butter, 2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour, 4 eggs, 2 cups of milk, and one spoonful of soda.
3. The British call their cupcakes “fairy cakes.”
While American bakers use buttercream to make cupcakes, bakers from Britain use a lighter glacé icing and call their cupcakes “fairy cakes.” Also, fairy cakes have their tops cut off and these are replaced by two pieces that look a lot like wings.
4. The world’s largest cupcake weighed 1.224 lbs.!
The world record for the largest cupcake ever baked was made by the Merengue Bakery in California in 2009. That record-breaking cupcake weighed a whopping 1,224 lbs. and had over 2 million calories. Moreover, it was 4 feet tall and 10 feet in diameter.

We’ll sell your vehicle at a top auction house in your area to generate funding for our nonprofit partners.

The proceeds from the sale of your donated vehicle will go directly to these nonprofits to support their life-saving programs. Thanks to your donation, our charity partners will be able to serve more of their beneficiaries, providing them with easy access to medical facilities where they can undergo all types of treatment, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation treatment.
These nonprofits also provide breast cancer survivors with follow-up care, including laboratory work, annual mammograms, and physician visits five years after remission. Other beneficiaries get to receive free breast cancer screening and prevention and education services.
You’ll also reap benefits from your donation since it will entitle you to receive a maximized tax deduction. Expect a 100% tax-deductible receipt in your mailbox a few weeks after the sale of your auto donation. Using this receipt, you can then claim your tax write-off in the next tax season.
