Cupcakes are sweet as sugar is a main ingredient used in baking while other cupcakes have added sweeteners and other flavors to enhance the taste.
A cupcake can be named spongy since the dough used to bake it is made to be soft and baking powder is added to allow the dough to rise so that when the cupcake is fully baked, it is soft to bit plus spongy to feel.
