The tradition of celebrating making it through to another year is a bit inconclusive. Forms of celebrations have morphed over the years. There was a time when only men’s birthdays were celebrated. How rude! The traditional cake and candle ceremony became available to more than the wealthy in the late 19th century. The song “Happy Birthday to You” landed in 1924.
The magnificent cupcake can be dated as far back as 1796. The first reference to cupcakes used in a cookbook was recorded in 1828. The word itself was a term for baking cakes in individual cups, or using a cup to measure, instead of a weight measurement.
