Cupcakes vs Muffins: What is the difference?

Cupcakes
Definition: a small cake baked in a pan having cuplike molds and typically frosted.
Muffins
Definition: a quick bread baked in a pan having cuplike molds.


Do a search on Google and there will be tons of pages arguing Cupcakes vs Muffins with lots of different theories, but I would like to simply define the difference with the simple definitions above. Do you agree?
