Cupcakes can be traced back to 1796, when Amelia Simmons wrote a note notation of "a cake to be baked in small cups" in American Cookery. In Eliza Leslie's Receipts cookbook, the first recorded evidence of the cupcake was in 1828 in Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats.

Bakers first baked their cupcakes in heavy pottery cups. However, bakers today use a slew of equipment at their disposal. Some bake their cupcakes using individual ramekins, small coffee mugs, large teacups, or other small ovenproof pottery-type dishes. Of course, the most common cupcake pan is the muffin or cupcake pan. Multiple cups of water are mixed in this handy tool.

Chocolate cupcakes come in a variety of flavors, as well. Of course, there's always the classic chocolate cupcake. But why does it come on a holiday?
