Those look sooooo tasty. Have a lovely Mother’s Day weekend, in spite of all the busyness! Reply Alysha May 9, 2013 at 9:11 am Oh, if only I didn’t live time zones away in Seattle… I’d swipe up boxes for my Mom for Mother’s Day…(and a few for me too). Reply Just Joyful May 9, 2013 at 9:19 am They look lovely – good enough to eat 🙂 I love the way you have added a little something to the packaging, making it special. I’m a bit nostalgic, though, for the term “patty cake”, but am slowly getting used to calling them cupcakes. Reply Angela May 9, 2013 at 7:45 pm No, no, no insist on patty cakes for patty cakes. We can’t lose our correct terms. Do it for the cooks of yesteryear and the purists of today. Reply Stan May 9, 2013 at 9:45 pm That’s interesting – I’ve never called them Patty cakes and even cupcakes is a fairly new name but I am intrigued by the export of names (and just words) from the UK many many moons ago which continue in use around the world but have fallen out of use here. I wonder if this is one of them. I was even more intrigued a few years ago to find that the huge timbers (crossbeams) in the colonial style wooden buildings in the US were calld ‘Girtons’. Here in Hampshire UK a ‘girt’un’ is short for a ‘great one’. Is there a connection? And Fi they are yummy looking cakes whatever they are called!
