What is the difference between muffins and cupcakes?

Report as

Usually, cupcakes have frosting, and i quote from dictionary.com, or rather, copy and pasted:

Cupcake: A small cake, the size of an individual portion, baked in a cup-shaped mold.

Muffin: An individual cup-shaped quick bread made with wheat flour, cornmeal, or the like, and baked in a pan (muffin pan) containing a series of cuplike forms.

The amount of sugar. It's really just a difference in recipes. Muffins are made more line a bread and cupcakes are made using cake batter.

Muffins tend to be "bread"; while cupcakes tend to be, well, "cake".
