What is the difference between…

… a fairy cake and a cupcake?

Until recently I had no idea. I thought that they were just different words for the same thing.

It was only until I thought I’d make some cupcakes that I discovered that they are different, in both ingredients and texture.

Not hugely, but still a slight difference.

A fairy cake is light and fluffy, whereas a cupcake is slightly denser in texture due to the addition of plain flour to the mix.

Could this analogy also be true of the difference between men and women?
