The lost-wax process, also known as cire-perdue, is a metal casting method that involves metal being poured into a mold made from a wax model.
The wax model is then melted before being drained away after the mold is created. Finally, there is an inclusion of a heat-proof core. The heat-proof core prevents the metal from filling the mold. The lost-wax process, used on every continent except Australia, dates to the third millennium BC and has undergone few alterations since then.
What is the History of the Birthday Cake?
Some historians believe that the birthday cake was first observed in ancient Greece and that it originated with the Greeks, who used to prepare honey cakes or bread.
In ancient Rome, a honey cake comprised of wheat flour, grated cheese, honey, and olive oil was served to commemorate the 50th anniversary of a person.
Others claim that having birthday cakes began in Germany during the Middle Ages when a sweetened bread dough was shaped into the shape of a baby Jesus in swaddling robes and used to celebrate his birthday.
Later, the Birthday Cake reappeared in Germany as a kinderfest or a birthday celebration for a small child. Birthday cakes in England are created with meaningful elements inside. Objects like coins and thimbles were mixed into the batter in medieval times. People thought that the lucky finder of the currency would be affluent, whereas the unlucky finder of the thimble would never marry. Miniature figures, false coins, and small candies are more popular nowadays.
