density of the confection? Brownies are almost universally chocolate, while cupcakes can be pretty much any flavor a cake comes in. Oh, and let's not forget the variations of wrapper that can be included in the cupcake.

cupcakes are like a denser cake-like consistency with frosting on top and muffins are more light and fluffy.

I've been on insulin for 27+ years, and have been eating cupcakes for at least 28. Live a little, and take a little bigger shot when you have one

I think muffins are denser, or at least all the cupcakes I have eaten have been lighter than all the blueberry muffins I've eaten.


I think this whole thread was just a ploy to get people to talk about eating muffins. I do love muffins.

This is where Wikipedia comes in handy:

Cupcake:
Quote:
A cupcake or fairy cake is a small cake designed to serve one person, usually made in a small paper cup container. As with larger cakes, frosting and other cake decorations, such as sprinkles, are defining characteristics of modern cupcakes.

Cupcakes are often served during a celebration, such as children's classroom birthday parties. Additionally they can be served as an accompaniment to afternoon tea. They are a more convenient alternative to cake because they don't require utensils or dividing into pieces because they are smaller.

A simple cupcake uses the same ingredients as most other standard cakes - incorporating butter, sugar, eggs, and flour.

The name "cup" cakes or "measure" cakes is believed to have developed because of the use of the practice of measuring the ingredients using a standard-sized cup instead of the previous practice of weighing the ingredients.

It is also possible that cupcakes came into being simply as smaller versions of the Victoria sponge cake, as the mixture required is exactly the same. The mixture is also the same as the quarter cake recipe, so called because it is made up of four ingredients in equal ratios; butter, self-raising flour, eggs and Castor sugar.
Muffin:
Quote:
A muffin is a small cake, resembling a cupcake: they have cylindrical bases, rounded conical tops, and are usually sweet, although savory varieties (such as cornbread muffins) also exist. They generally fit in the palm of an adult hand, and are intended to be consumed by an individual in a single sitting. A muffin can also mean a different baked good, the smaller, disk-shaped English muffin, although this usage is uncommon outside Britain. As American style muffins are now sold in the UK, the term can refer to either product, the context usually making clear which is meant. There are many varieties and flavors of muffins made with a specific ingredient such as blueberries or chocolate chips. These ingredients are then baked into the muffin.
