The Cakeyboi Alphabet - F

F is for Fairy Cake

What is the definition of a fairy cake? What is the difference between a fairy cake and a cupcake? Well it depends on where you look on the internet. But the majority seem to agree that a fairy cake is the same as a cupcake, it's just the term which used to be used more commonly in the UK, but now not so much. And a cupcake of course is a cake in single serve version, decorated with frosting (or icing) and other such deliciousness.


  1. Fairy cake or cupcake, I love them all! I see the tiny paper cups in the shops and I think of those as fairy cakes, slightly smaller than a cupcake. I've never made the tiny cakes but they must be lovely, a greater ratio of frosting to cake. : )
