Patty Cakes vs Cup Cakes
A couple of colleagues and I were chatting away about how adorable the Australia's Biggest Morning Tea Cupcakes were, when our Head of Programs and Research strolled in. She said that she objected to the name cupcakes as it was Americanised and claimed they ought to be called patty cakes. This has got me thinking as I call the liners 'patty pans' and differentiate between a patty cake and a cup cake based on size and style. What do you call your single serve cakes? Where do you draw the line? Discuss.
