The History of Cake Day

The history of cake dates all the way back to Ancient Greece and Egypt. Eggs and butter were often added to basic bread to give a consistency that today we would recognize as cake, and honey added as a sweetener. These cakes were still very different from the indulgent dessert we know and love today, they were flat in shape and still more bread-like than cake. Cake was recognized as being the height of indulgence, making it a common gift offering to the gods at their temples. During the Great Depression, the boxed cake mix was born due to the need for cheap and easy food to the millions of Americans living in poverty.
