It is not known for certain in what year the first cake appeared. But its shape was studied: it was flat and very different from the modern one. It was made from flour, eggs, nuts and honey. It cannot be said that the dessert had the brightest taste, rather, on the contrary, it was moderate, but at the same time catchy.
The jewelry trend became popular only in the 17th century, but was not recognized by everyone. At the end of the 19th century, it became a real art, uniting people from different parts of the world. One article does not list all the techniques used by the masters.
