A cupcake is a small individual cake, baked in a pan and covered with paper, decorated with colored icing and other eye-catching decorations.
Nobody is really sure of the origin of the cupcake, but the term was used for the first time in 1828 in the book of recipe Seventy-Five Receipts for Pastry, Cakes and sweetmeats written by Eliza Leslie.
Popular in the 50s, the cupcake has lost its appeal until early 2000 when it appeared in the television series Sex and the City. Since then, the cake has become a trend.
Sex and the city
Several shops in Montreal bake and sell cupcakes. Our favorite is the shop is Itsi Bitsi, located on Notre-Dame West, near metro Lionel-Groulx.
According to a survey conducted in 10 languages and 18 countries with LGBT people, New York was found as the world’s most popular destination of this community. This study was conducted by Out Now Global LGBT2020 Study.
