During their initial days, cakes very much resembled their close cousins – breads. However, with the passage of time, we became inventive, and startedputting in nuts, fruits, honey and other condiments to our cake preparations. It was because of their limited availability in the olden times and their rich distinction from bread, that they were mostly bought by the affluent and high-class.
While birthday cakes were a tradition of the Western European regions and originated towards the middle of 19th century, bakeries in Germany were also known to market birthday cakes for special clients as early as the 15th century. It was somewhere around the 17th century that cakes took theirmodern form through the inclusion oficing, multiple layers and decorations. With their growing popularity, regular cakes also became more accessible and affordable, thus making them easier to buy.
There are some fascinating stories attached to birthday cakes, and the ritual of having candles in birthday cakes. The Ancient Egyptians believed that on coronation, pharaohs achieved a godly status and hence it signified their birth into a superior form. They therefore celebrated coronations with cakes. Again, the ancient Greeks would offer cakes decorated with lighted candles in the temple of Artemis, the moon goddess, to make them glow like the moon.
The Germans are known to celebrate “Kinderfest” or the birthday of a child with cakes and candles, where every year a new candle was added to the cake, denoting the child’s age. The candles were “lights of life” and indicated the hopes of another fruitful and happy year.
A lot of other cultures like the Chinese, Russian, Swedish, Dutch and even Indians have cakes as their celebratory dessert. Other than birthdays, wedding cakes, Christmas cakes and cake for anniversary are some of the most popular commemorative cake types.
