When baking for others, the important thing is to know what they enjoy most in a cupcake. Cupcake recipes have evolved into more than sugar and flour and baking powder. Some cupcake recipes include such ingredients these days as zucchini, beets, and even liquor. No, cupcakes are not just for kids anymore but rest assured there is a cupcake to suit everyone; you just have to know what your “someone” likes.
