Cupcake



7hb Februari 2009 yang lepas isteri aku pi belajar cupcake. Tu la kek kecik molek dengan lukisan isin kat atas yang berwarna-warni tu.

Cupkek ni menarik dia punya presentation jika kena dengan tujuan dan tema yang dipilih dan yang penting kekretifan pembuatnya itu. Kek ini mempunyai 2 lapisan dimana lapisan bawah merupakan kek (tak kisah kek apa seperti kek vanila, cokelat, buah dan sebagainya) dan dibahagian atas dilapisi isin yang di hias diatasnya dengan cantik ( hiasan atas isin boleh terdiri dari isin yang berwarna-warni ,manik, bunga, fondan dan sebagainya).




Sebut mengenai kreatif, cupecake ini memang memerlukan tahap kekretifan yang tinggi dan ditambah dengan kesabaran, jika tak sabar kek ni boleh jadi lempeng kena baling kat dinding. Dan yang penting untuk dekorate tu, pelukis tak boleh ada penyakit parkinson.

Cupcake dalam bahasa Malaysia Kek Cawan kot? tapi kita guna bahasa oghang putih ja la, senang sikit. Cup cake ini amat sesuai untuk majlis-majlis pertunangan, perkahwinan, harijadi, rumah terbuka dan segala macam majlis yang manusia ada untuk makan.

Ini serba sedikit tentang sejarah cup cake yang aku dapat dari internet:



Here's a cupcake primer: A "cup" cake in 19th Century America might have been a small cake, but it wasn't necessarily so. They were so called because the ingredients for them were measured in cups instead of weighed, as had been the custom. According to "Baking in America" by Greg Patent, this was revolutionary because of the tremendous time it saved in the kitchen.

Whether it was a "cup," "measure" or "number" cake, the shift to measuring from weighing was indeed a significant one, according to "The Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America." But it goes on to explain that the cup name had a double meaning because of the practice of baking in small containers -- including tea cups.

The cups were for convenience because hearth ovens took an extremely long time to bake a large cake -- and early cakes, by the way, were enormous -- and burning was common. Gem pans, early muffin tins, were common in households around the turn of the 20th Century and cupcakes were then baked in those.

(And if you're wondering, it was 1919 when Hostess introduced the famous snack cupcake, but it didn't become the cream-filled, squiggle-topped Hostess Cup Cake we know today until 1950.)

It's interesting to note that the cakes were likely called "number" cakes because of a mnemonic device for remembering the recipe: One cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour and four eggs plus one cup of milk and one spoonful of soda.

The formula became known as the one-two-three-four cake, and today's cupcakes are mostly still made with similar traditional cake ingredients

Since their creation, cupcakes have become a pop culture trend in the culinary world. They have spawned dozens of bakeries devoted entirely to them. While chocolate and vanilla remain classic favorites, fancy flavors such as raspberry meringue and espresso fudge can be found on menus. There are cookbooks, blogs, and magazines specifically dedicated to cupcakes.
