Are you ready to party? Don't forget to invite this cute cupcake drawing. She's just as sweet as her saccharine smile.

How did the cupcake - a sweet muffin with sugar icing on top - come to be our go-to treat for celebrations?

According to the Hummingbird Bakery, "While cake itself in some form or another has been around since ancient times, cupcakes first came about in America."

The first reference to these single-serving cakes seems to be in a 1796 cookbook entitled American Cookery.

Scroll down for a downloadable PDF of this tutorial.

Cooking the cakes in individual cups (or a muffin tin) allows them to bake faster while using less energy. It also makes them easy to hold, to eat without plates or silverware, and be enjoyed by a crowd!

How big is your sweet tooth? If you're looking for more smiling cartoon sweets like this cute cupcake outline, take a taste of this milkshake, popsicle, or cotton candy.

Did you know? Throughout history, sugar has not always been a readily available commodity. In the past, cakes were sweetened with honey or fruit rather than with sugar. The cakes and cupcakes we eat today are much sweeter than those of the past.
