So far I have found that the difference is that cupcakes are smaller (one portion as opposed to a cake which must be cut into portion sizes, hence piece of cake rather than piece of cupcake), you can't put cream in cupcakes, and a cupcake has a muffin top. Not to mention that cupcakes are iced only on the top whereas cakes are iced on the top and sides. AND the cooking time is different -LuckyNumber07 Says... So you are saying the base of a cupcake and cake are the same. But the frosting on a cupcake is only on the top and on a cake the icing or frosting is on the sides too!! :) Not to mention cupcakes are smaller. Darn!! :) -LuckyNumber07 (\__/)

Fats in cupcakes serve the same purpose as they do in cakes. The fats in cupcakes give them moistness, flavor and a better texture. Without fats, they would be very dry and unappealing to eat. There are several different types of fats that can be used in them, and most recipes do allow for substitution of one type of fat for another. Some of the fats that are used in cupcakes and cakes are shortening, butter, margarine and vegetable oil. You can also use olive oil and coconut oil in many recipes for baked goods.
