More than 40% of all new cupcakes in the UK last year were created using cupcakes.
In 2017, the UK is set to become the first country in Europe to ban the sale of cupcakes, according to a report by the National Farmers Union.
The report, entitled ‘Cupcakes and their effect on food and the environment’, said the UK’s ban was being used to “re-evaluate the future of cupcake-making”.
The UK’s first cupcake ban was introduced in May, following a report into food safety in the country, which found that more than 200,000 cups of chocolate were made in the EU during the period.
The NFU said that the ban was aimed at improving food safety, and was part of a wider package of initiatives to make cupcakes less environmentally damaging.
According to the NFU, in 2018 there were 1.1 million fewer cupcakes produced, but that figure would drop to 0.6 million in 2020. “
A ban on cupcakes would ensure that this iconic food is a healthy choice for the UK consumer.”

In the UK, the most popular food type is coffee and the highest percentage of UK adults are in favour of banning the sale and consumption of coffee.
There were more than 20,000 complaints from people against coffee shops last year, according the NFS.
The organisation said that “in the long term, banning coffee will make it more environmentally sustainable”.
There was also concern about how the UK would tackle the effects of climate change, with climate change forecast to cause an estimated 1.4 million premature deaths and 6.6 billion hospital admissions by 2050.
It also noted that the UK was the only country in the world where half of the carbon emissions were due to domestic food production.
The government has made progress on the environment in recent years.
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs launched a new £300m fund in 2016, and in 2018, it was announced that the Government was to spend up to £10bn on renewable energy projects over the next five years.
