“Muffins are just unfrosted cupcakes”

Cupcakes are often compared to muffins, and frosting is a key difference. Many people believe that a cupcake is a frosted muffin, and that a muffin is an unfrosted cupcake. “I just ate a frosted ‘muffin’ that looked and tasted suspiciously like a cupcake...” was posted on Twitter by Benjamin Santiago on August 22, 2008.

“A Muffin is just an unfrosted cupcake” was posted on Twitter by Pants Police on May 10, 2010. “Unfrosted cupcakes are muffins” was posted on Twitter by Shevi Arnold on August 4, 2010. “Muffins are just unfrosted cupcakes to me!” was posted on Twitter by SweetSweet Cupcake on April 4, 2011. “Psst. Muffins are just unfrosted cupcakes. Let’s keep this between just us for now” was posted on Twitter by SHANZIG on May 29, 2011.

“Cupcakes are just frosted muffins” was posted on Twitter by f. on November 19, 2011. “ Cupcakes are just frosted muffins, Leann” was posted on Twitter by Jason Eberle on May 4, 2012. “Cupcakes are just frosted muffins right?” was posted on Twitter by Shora on June 1, 2012. “Cupcakes= frosted muffins #mindblown” was posted on Twitter by John Paul Blanton on December 6, 2012.


Wikipedia: Cupcake
A cupcake (also British English: fairy cake; Hiberno-English: bun; Australian English: fairy cake or patty cake) is a small cake designed to serve one person, which may be baked in a small thin paper or aluminum cup. As with larger cakes, frosting and other cake decorations such as fruit and candy may be applied.

Wikipedia: Muffin
A muffin is an individual-sized, baked product. It can refer to two distinct items, a part-raised flatbread that is baked and then cooked on a griddle (typically unsweetened) and a cupcake-like quickbread (often sweetened) that is chemically leavened and then baked in a mold. While quickbread muffins are often sweetened, there are savory varieties made with ingredients such as corn and cheese. The flatbread is of British or European derivation, and dates from at least the early 18th century, while the quickbread originated in North America during the 19th century. Both are common worldwide today.

Is an unfrosted cupcake a muffin? And, conversely, is a frosted muffin a cupcake?
