Cupcakes originated in ancient Rome. People prepared their prototype from barley flour, nuts, raisins, pomegranate. Instead of sugar, honey was used – it gave the perfect sweetness to the product. If you saw an ancient cake now, you would not find similarities with modern masterpieces: it looked more like a bread cake stuffed with dried fruits. What was its original taste is anyone’s guess…
In the 16th century, sugar spread throughout the world. People were not at a loss when they started using it in baking: the product contributed to a longer storage of products, because the fermentation processes slowed down. Until the end of the 19th century, cupcakes were baked in earthenware, then the era of special molds began: industries came up with new types and created them on a large scale.
