    E' una frase tratta da "The Candy Country" (Louisa M.Alcott). La storia è ambientata in dei paese in cui ogni elemento, naturale e umano, è un dolce. Ci sono vari tipi di caramelle e di tortini,anche le persone sono caramelle da mangiare. In questo caso la queen cake sarebbe un buon posto in cui sedersi..

    Lily was so surprised she sat down on a warm queen's cake that happened
    to be near, and watched Snap send down load after load of gingerbread to
    be eaten by children, who would have liked it much better if they had
    only known where it came from, as she did.

    Direi che sono la stessa cosa di cupcakes.

    These regency Queen Cakes are what we now term cup-cakes. A cup cake was traditionally a small cake with the instructions, from the 1700′s onwards, to bake in a tea-cup or ceramic mug. The actual term ‘cup cake’ was first mentioned in 1828....

    Speculando un po', forse qui potrebbe intendere di grandi dimensioni, queen size cake, con un possibile gioco di parole con king size.
