Celebrated on December 15th
The world’s most expensive cupcake is the Rox Diamond cupcake. It was created to honor the annual Glam in the City event in Scotland. The cupcake, a pretty pink treat, is dripping with tiny diamonds and is worth over $150,000.
No one is quite sure how the cupcake found its name, but there are a few theories. Some say its name comes from being originally baked in teacups. This was before the age of muffin tins. Others say it comes from measuring ingredients by the cup. They’ve even been called “number cakes” and “1-2-3-4 cakes” because recipes called for one cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, four eggs (and one cup of milk and one spoon of baking soda).
The world record for eating cupcakes in one sitting is 29 cupcakes in 30 seconds.
