Cupcakes have also been known to be called:
Fairy Cakes, Patty Cakes, and Cup Cakes (different from Cupcakes (one-word)
Cupcakes can be traced back to 1796 when there was a recipe notation of “a cake to be baked in small cups” written in American Cookery, by Amelia Simmons. The earliest known documentation of the term cupcake was in 1828 in Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats in Eliza Leslie’s Receipts cookbook.
