I know you probably just came for the craft, but I hope you’ll stay to read the fun facts I’ve found about cupcakes and the hilarious jokes that will have the whole family cracking up. Oh yeah and don’t miss the freebie at the end of this post.

A quick tip:  When making this craft, I suggest using a glue stick.  Wet glue, crafts, and kids can make an extremely messy mix.  My craft-testing seven-year-old loves wet glue but…

In true kid fashion, he makes big piles of glue that not only have the marker bleeding through the pieces of the craft but also have the craft sticking to the table.

(If you do use wet glue don’t forget to do it on some paper, so it’s not directly on the table)

Facts About Cupcakes

Cupcakes Were Once Called Number Cakes.  The term ‘cupcake’ was originally used as a way to remember the amount of ingredients to make a cake.  Each ingredient is measured by the cupful:  1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 cups flour, and 4 eggs.  This 1,2,3,4 recipe is why cupcakes were also once called number cakes.

The people of Britain call cupcakes fairy cakes.   Australians call cupcakes patty cakes.

October 18th is National Chocolate Cupcake Day.  Honor the vanilla cupcake on November 9th, as it is National Vanilla Cupcake Day.  Finally, we celebrate all cupcake flavors on National Cupcake Day, which is on December 15th every year. So Mark your calendars…..yummm
