The history of cake is not as delicious as you would think….
Cake dates back to ancient times when the first cakes were made in Ancient Greece and Egypt. These cakes were very heavy and flat and they were eaten after a meal with nuts and honey.
In many other cultures around the world cake was reserved for Gods. The sweet treat was offered to them at temples as a sign of respect and love. Nowadays we enjoy these diversely flavoured sugary treats whatever the occasion.
And here is a fun fact for you. Did you know that yeast cakes are one of the oldest types of cake and are a lot like bread in texture?
