Did You Know. . .

that supposedly crumb cake originally came from Silesia which is a province in Western Poland?

that the word "cupcake" first was seen in a recipe from a cookbook in America in the year 1826 (per food historian, Andrew Smith)?  The word "cup" is believed to be referring to the amount of ingredients used in the recipe (a cupful of sugar, a cupful of butter, a cupful of flour. . .).

that per Lynne Olver (she has a website called the Food Timeline) there was a recipe found that called for the cake to be baked in cups and it was from the year 1796.
