National Cake Day is celebrated in America on November 26th. This is the sweetest holiday of the year, because it is dedicated to delicacy, without which not a single celebration can do. Sometimes we eat dessert on gray weekdays to cheer up. It is difficult to find a person who refuses a piece that melts in your mouth!
Cake is an ancient dish. Scientists have not been able to figure out when it appeared with 100% accuracy. It probably happened in Italy about 2 years ago. The name was considered to be something richly decorated, intricate… The researchers also found confirmation in Greece – the remains of pies, decorated with drawings, were found here, they were prepared from ground grains. There is an opinion that cakes could also have appeared in the East – these areas have always been famous for their sweets.
In the 19th century, cakes firmly entered life in Europe: they became a real symbol of birthdays. The candles to be blown out appeared a little later. Products with pleasure complemented romantic evenings, gatherings with friends, family dinners. It is hard to imagine how we would live without this dessert.
