“Did You Know…?” Cupcake Fun Facts

Cupcakes 03212017a

Cupcakes have been around since the late 1700’s. The first mention of the cupcake can be traced as far back as 1796, when a recipe notation of “a cake to be baked in small cups” was written in American Cookery by Amelia Simms.

 

  • Cupcakes were actually originally called “Number Cakes” or “1234 Cakes” because it was an easy way to remember portions…One cup of butter, two cups of sugar, three cups of flour, four eggs, one cup of milk, and one spoonful of soda.
  • Original cupcake recipes were not frosted, and usually were usually just flavored with spices or dried fruit.

Eating Cookies Has Health Benefits

Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Cookies contain Fiber, Vitamins and Minerals that our bodies need.  

FIBER:  The oats in an oatmeal cookie contain soluble fiber, which reduces your bad cholesterol level and decreases your risk of heart disease. Soluble fiber can also help regulate your blood sugar levels, according to MayoClinic.com.*

VITAMINS:  A 1-ounce oatmeal cookie contains folate (vitamin B) which helps you make energy and lowers the risk of certain birth defects, vitamin A for healthy eyes and vitamin K, which clots your blood. *

MINERALS: The most notable mineral you’ll get from an oatmeal cookie is iron. Iron plays a role in the formation of red blood cells and can also protect your immune system. The same oatmeal cookie delivers small amounts of potassium, which you need for healthy muscles, as well as zinc, which aids in wound healing.*

… As if we REALLY need a reason… EVER… for a cupcake!!   😉

Here are our Top 5 Reasons To Give Someone A Cupcake (or a Dozen):

  1. To say “Thank You“- for doing that little something that person always does but never gets acknowledged for it.  (the gal at the office who always makes that pot of coffee in the morning for the staff, even though she doesn’t drink it? )
  2. To say “I Hope You’re Having A Better Day Today” – for that guy who was late to the office yesterday because he was in a fender-bender and now has deal with the car repair shop.
  3. To say “Happy Birthday” – to that friend who already is having a party with cake, but you wanted something just for her/him to be able to relax with over a coffee.
  4. To say “I Hope You Have A Speedy Recovery” – for that person who is recuperating and might need a bit of cheer.
  5. To say “Happy Housewarming” – for that new Homeowner who will certainly welcome a sweet treat at this busy time!

Team Building Activity That Doesn’t Suck

Prepping for a Decorating Party2

In terms of corporate development, team-building exercises are important not for the immediate experience of the activities performed by the team, but also for the group skills, communication and bonding that result.

But team building at work can be tricky, especially when typical team building activities tend to induce more eye rolls among teammates than high-fives.

Consider a Cookie Decorating Team Building Exercise!  Not only will the participants be able to work together, test their skills, and have a bit of healthy competition… they will get to take home their beautiful finished products! (if there are any uneaten by that time)
