Some say that the origin of the word “cupcake” comes from the small cups used to measure ingredients out for them. I tend to think that the name might come from the fact that they may have been baked in small cups to get them down to size, since they are also called baby cakes from time to time. But even better than a cupcake is a cupcake that is actually baked in the cup that might be its namesake. If you don’t want to worry about how oven-safe your teacups are, don’t worry because Fred has it covered with some cute Teacupcake Cupcake Molds. These silicone molds look just like teacups, complete with handle and saucer to give them a very finished look when you serve them. They have a flat base and can easily stand up on a baking sheet unsupported while in the oven. Your cupcakes can – and should be – served right in their cups. If you want to do a tea-flavored cake, so much the better, but last time I checked hot chocolate and coffee go well in a cup and saucer, too.
