Hostess Cupcake Day

Hostess Cupcake Day is an annual American holiday dedicated to this wonderful treat. It falls on May 11. Hostess cupcakes are popular not only in the United States, but all over the world. Today we celebrate this holiday to remember how the history of this sweet product began and enjoy its taste!


The history of Hostess Cupcake Day is closely tied to the creation of the cupcakes themselves. The confectionery first went on sale on May 11, 1919. The manufacturer was Taggart Baking for a long time until 2013. Due to bankruptcy, it was bought out by the large company AGM, and the products continued to delight its customers with their excellent taste and high quality.

Hostess cupcakes were originally known among consumers as chocolate cup cakes. They got their modern look in the 1950s, thanks to company employee D.R. Rice, who was responsible for developing the products. Eventually the top of the cupcake was decorated with curls, and vanilla cream appeared as the filling.

All Hostess products are prepared according to original recipes and have been keeping the quality bar high for more than 100 years, continuing to delight their customers.
