A Cupcake is a small cake designed to serve one person , frequently baked in a small thin paper / aluminum cup. Cupcakes are cute and appealing to eye and it will be great to munch with tea / coffee.
Cupcake is called as fairy cake in British English and as patty cake / cupcake in Australian English .
The making of cupcake is same as the larger cakes and decorations like frosting are also done on cupcakes.
