Cupcake In Spanish
I always say penguin ... for the cupcakes that make Mexico famous when I'm there!
I think there will be many different Spanish translations of the word cupcake, but I can say that in Mexico we know it as Monticada.
It depends on the country and the region. In northern Mexico, they are called keikto (singular, called KehKiTo).
Penicito or pistilito. It depends on the country, but I think both are acceptable in both countries.
There is no literal translation ... but in Mexico it is called pancreato.
