Happy National Chocolate Cupcake Day! People in the United States first started enjoying these adorable, delectable mini cakes in the early 1800s, but the origin of their name is still unknown. Some say they were made from a regular cake batter that was baked in little cups, while others say that it came from the recipe itself, as everything was measured by cups. Whatever the story behind their invention, cupcakes are definitely a dessert worth celebrating! And while there are endless options of cupcake flavors to try, chocolate cupcakes are a staple that everyone can enjoy and so versatile that they can really be paired with anything.
