Una cupcake (literalmente pastel de taza), también conocida como fairy cake o taza de pastel, es una pequeña tarta para una persona, frecuentemente cocinada en un molde similar al empleado para hacer magdalenas o muffins. Es una receta de origen estadounidense, e incluye añadidos como glaseado y virutas.
El alimento surge en el siglo XIX. Antes de que surgieran los moldes para hacer muffins, solían hacerse en tazones, cazuelas de barro o ramequines, siendo este el significado de su nombre en inglés (cup y cake). También existe otro origen para su nombre, derivado de la forma de medir los ingredientes empleados para su elaboración.
La receta base de un cupcake es similar a la de cualquier otra tarta: mantequilla, azúcar, huevos y harina. La mayoría de recetas para tartas pueden servir, y debido a su reducido tamaño se realizan más rápido que una tarta común. Lo más habitual es que sean elaboradas en moldes al uso, similares a los empleados para hacer muffin. Servido como un postre, es frecuente en la cocina norteamericana que esté presente en celebraciones de cumpleaños y fiestas infantiles.

A cupcake (British English: fairy cake; Australian English: patty cake or cup cake) is a small cake designed to serve one person, frequently baked in a small, thin paper or aluminum cup. As with larger cakes, frosting and other cake decorations, such as sprinkles, are common on cupcakes.
In the early 19th century, there were two different uses for the name cup cake or cupcake. In previous centuries, before muffin tins were widely available, the cakes were often baked in individual pottery cups, ramekins, or molds and took their name from the cups they were baked in. This is the use of the name that has persisted, and the name of "cupcake" is now given to any small cake that is about the size of a teacup. The name "fairy cake" is a fanciful description of its size, which would be appropriate for a party of diminutive fairies to share. While English fairy cakes vary in size more than American cupcakes, they are traditionally smaller, and rarely topped with elaborate icing.
The first mention of the cupcake can be traced as far back as 1796, when a recipe notation of "a cake to be baked in small cups" was written in American Cookery by Amelia Simms. The earliest documentation of the term cupcake was in “Seventy-five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes, and Sweetmeats” in 1828 in Eliza Leslie's Receipts cookbook.
The other kind of "cup cake" referred to a cake whose ingredients were measured by volume, using a standard-sized cup, instead of being weighed. Recipes whose ingredients were measured using a standard-sized cup could also be baked in cups; however, they were more commonly baked in tins as layers or loaves. In later years, when the use of volume measurements was firmly established in home kitchens, these recipes became known as 1234 cakes or quarter cakes, so called because they are made up of four ingredients: one cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, and four eggs. They are plain yellow cakes, somewhat less rich and less expensive than pound cake, due to using about half as much butter and eggs compared to pound cake. The names of these two major classes of cakes were intended to signal the method to the baker; "cup cake" uses a volume measurement, and "pound cake" uses a weight measurement.
In the early 21st century, a trend for cupcake shops was reported in the United States, playing off of the sense of nostalgia evoked by the cakes. In New York City, cupcake shops like Magnolia Bakerygained publicity in their appearances on popular television shows like HBO's Sex and the City. In 2010, television presenter Martha Stewart published a cook book dedicated to cupcakes.
