Cupcakes in a Coffee Cup

I was recently giving the history of the cupcake to a friend and came across photos of cupcakes baked and served in coffee cups or espresso cups (mini cupcakes).  In the 1800s, small cakes were baked in cups...hence the name!  Serving cupcakes in cups makes a great presentation after a special meal.

P.S.  Make sure your coffee cups or mugs are oven safe!

A twist:  cupcakes not baked in a coffee cup...but
cupcakes shaped like coffee cups

Cupcakes baked in paper coffee cups
