NATIONAL CUPCAKE DAY
Each year, December 15th also celebrates National Cupcake Day, an “unofficial” national holiday. The cupcake was originally known as the 1-2-3-4 cake because the recipe called for 1 cup of butter, 2 cups of sugar, 3 cups of flour, 4 eggs and also 1 cup of milk and 1 spoonful of baking soda.
The single serve cake makes it convenient for serving and sharing. Today there are a variety of recipes and just as many flavors to choose from.
Bake a batch of cupcakes and share them with a friend or two. Try one of these recipes:
