A custard cup is a small glass bowl with a handle or short stem that was traditionally used to serve individual servings of custard. It was first made in a clear glass during the Victorian era and is still used today. The shape of the cup was adapted from earlier cups that were used to serve other things, like jelly, syllabub, and fruit. However, nowadays, the cup is generally made from colored glass.
There are many types of custard cups, ranging from those made of porcelain to those made of glass. These cups are used for making individual servings of a variety of desserts and custards. A variety of materials are used to make them, and they come in various sizes and shapes. A custard cup is smaller than a ramekin and is, therefore, better suited for small servings of custard.
