The first mention of the cupcake can be traced as far back as 1796; this makes it highly likely that when Napoleon Bonaparte gained his first victory as an army commander at the Battle of Montenotte, he and his merry men celebrated with this delicious little treat, befitting for a little man. They may have also ended the evening by dancing to a mariachi band and forming a conga line while Napoleon did interpretive dance on the staircase. Gail's Flour Power Home Industry promises to give you the tastiest cupcakes you have ever had with these six vanilla topped pieces of perfection. However, you will have to order these babies in advance as the fancy vanilla cupcakes at Gail's Flour Power Home Industry do not last long at all.
Originally aimed at being a baked bite-sized delicacy for kids, making them happier than a meerkat reclining on a hammock drinking strawberry milkshake with a little umbrella in it, adults have also come under the wiles of this tasty treat. Decorated with everything from sponges that live in pineapples under the sea to rainbows and sassy sayings - these tiny titbits have been used as a party treat, a new take on wedding cakes and a simple ‘pick me up’ after a long day of working hard at the salt mines.

Baking fact: A model car collector in Tokyo hit it big by starting his own baking company where he baked cupcakes shaped like little cars. His business was a roaring success until he fled Tokyo insisting that his workshop was being haunted by mice that had previously lived there and were angry because they had not had any of his famous cupcakes while alive.
