Hopefully we’ve all received the opportunity at one point or another to experience a good cupcake. There’s nothing quite like it. Some say the cupcake originated before muffin tins were available. The cakes were baked in small individual cups or moulds - hense the word “cupcake”. And do you know what cupcake is in Afrikaans? Kolwyntjie. Could you get any more adorable or cuter than that?!

In the last 10 years, these miniature baked treats have taken on gourmet status with many a trendoid brandishing bespoke boxes of cupcakes from speciality cupcake shops. Do you remember when we wrote about the world’s most expensive cupcake – that had 23 carat edible gold?
