Cupcake battle
4-H members duke it out for culinary supremacy
Its been said the cupcake is a muffin consumed by magic. Maybe so, but young Brantley Thomasson is only concerned with the chocolate icing.
A cupcake can be a work of art constructed from an assortment of ingredients, with flour, powdered sugar and chocolate being some key items going into the miniature creations. Cupcakes can be dated back to 1796 when a notation was made in a cooking publication, saying “A light cake to bake in small cups.” Cupcake recipes were included in a cookbook from 1828, and are enjoying mass popularity today.
