What does Cupcaking mean?

Cupcaking means Flirting

Ever seen your friend ditch the group to cuddle up and whisper sweet nothings to someone they’re into? That’s called Cupcaking. The term comes from the same sweetness associated with the delicious dessert cupcakes, and being sweet on someone means you really like them.

Cupcaking is often coupled with a lot of public display of affection. This could be anything from holding hands and kissing, to whispering in each other’s ears or just snuggling up together. It’s all about showing that special someone how much they mean to you.

The slang is also known by another term – caking. So next time you see a friend missing from the group and indulging in some sweet PDA, you know they’re just cupcaking.
