In most parts of the world a birthday is just not a birthday without a cake. I thought it would be interesting to learn how this tradition started and how it transformed from one culture to the other.
Cake, the word
The word Cake goes back to the 13th century. The word is of Viking origin, from the Old Norse "kaka". It is described as a baked flour confection sweetened with sugar or honey; it is mixed with eggs and often includes milk and fat.
The cake evolution
Cakes were very different from what we know today, in ancient Greece they started off as bread-like, sweetened with honey.
In the middle-ages, Germany used a sweetened bread-dough in the shape of baby Jesus to commemorate his birthday. It was later that the Birthday Cake truly emerged as a celebration item

While I was going through the gallery to pick someone for the awesomeness today, I noticed :iconginas-cakes: ginas-cakes piece: Okami. I thought it was clay, or rubber, some really neat looking statue and I wanted to see more of the detail, so you must imagine the look on my face once I realized IT WAS A CAKE!
As I mentioned above, this cake called Okami, was what brought me gina-cakes. The amount of detail in all of it just amazes me. I honestly am running out of ways to say "WOW!!!" in my head.It took her thirty hours to create this piece (as it says in the description), and
I honestly don't think I could bring myself to eat this piece, and neither could her daughter which was who she made this for.

Do you like cake? Duh!
