Why Cake: What Makes Cake So Desirable At Celebrations?

It’s become a tradition at every birthday, wedding or even just family get together, but why? Where Did this tradition start? Well, I’m the kind of girl who just loves learning and reading so I found this book “Cake: a Global History” and it’s got a lot of great interesting facts! Want to teach your kids a fun lesson? Have a baking day and a good book!

Cake vs Cupcakes?

How to choose between the two… or both!

Think about the size of your party. Are you going to be the one serving the cake out? If you’re going to have a lot of littles running around it’s a great idea to go with cupcakes because they can quickly grab their dessert and keep going. Cupcakes can be placed together in a shape for a cake with the same icing decor as cake without the extra mess and expense of plates and forks. If you’re serving maybe a small get together like a morning brunch, small cupcakes are a great idea to add just a little something extra for sweetness without having a large tray of sugar that will sit on your counter for the next week and no one touch it. Now, if you’re having a large get together like a wedding or large party or holiday get together and you don’t mind having to slice through and hand out pieces, that’s where you would enjoy a cake rather. Things that require elegance and wow factor are also a great place for a cake where you can hire a real cake decorator to create something beautiful, something magical that just makes your day complete!
