Cupcake vs Muffin

June 22, 2010
So what is the difference between cupcake and muffin?

Before googling it, I thought that the primary difference is that cupcakes are pretty while muffins aren't. And hmm.. I was right.. partially. :D

But the main difference is that a muffin is any quickbread (mixed by muffin mixing method & does NOT contain yeast) that is in the shape of a cupcake. While, a cupcake is any cake batter mixed with the straight method or creaming method made into the shape of a cup. Cupcakes (traditionally) have frosting on top, while muffins have no frosting, but muffins can have a glaze on top.

And according to one post, If you threw a cupcake against the wall, you would hear something of a 'poof!' If you threw a muffin, you would hear a 'thud!'

So now who wants to get hurt? I'll throw yah a muffin. :D
