Muffins tend to be more commonly seen on breakfast tables as some muffins could contain nuts, bran, oats or fruit. Cupcakes on the other hand are more decadent and tend to look more attractive than the plain muffin. Cupcakes usually have frosting on them and people nowadays tend to use cupcakes to substitute birthday cakes as cupcakes offer a more convenient way of eating cake and are cute 🙂
