Cakes are a staple when it comes to birthdays. Many of us try to make our own cakes during such occasions, but we always end up making the same old types every year! If you want a new cake recipe, this video is definitely a gem! It features a tutorial for a “beautiful rose cake” and it spectacular to say the least!
The history of birthday cake dates back to the ancient Romans, who made special pastries that were round, flat and sweetened with honey. These were offered to the goddess of the hearth, Vesta, as a symbol of good luck. Later, in the Middle Ages, cakes were made with a combination of flour, milk, eggs and sweeteners, such as honey or sugar, and eaten during special occasions.
However, it was not until the 19th century that cakes began to take on the form we know them as today, with layers of cake and frosting. By the late 19th century, the practice of bringing out a cake and singing “Happy Birthday” had become commonplace.
