What is the difference between fairy cakes and cupcakes?
I have a feeling this will be a discussion that could go on and on, my answer and only my opinion is fairy cakes, small cakes with little decoration, i.e – small amount of buttercream or icing maybe with a few sprinkles.
Cupcakes a larger cake with lots of buttercream and more excessive decorating.
Depending on your recipe also fairycakes have slightly more ingredients and they tend to be either vanilla or chocolate, cupcakes have much more variety of flavours.
Fairycakes made for a school sale
What do you expect when you enter a shop and ask for a cupcake? what price do you pay for it?
If I walk into a shop and they are charging over a pound you would expect a larger cake with lots of decoration but if it cheap then I wouldn’t expect anything more than a fairy cake.
(please remember this is only my opinion)
I will say I see people advertising/saying I made cupcakes today and then the image is nothing like I would expect, now that gets my goat.
What’s your opinion please? x
