What’s the History of Birthday Cakes?
It was a Greek idea to put candles on a cake. So worshippers brought moon-shaped cakes to the sanctuary of Artemis, the goddess of the moon and the hunt, in Ancient Greece. The cakes were garnished with lit candles to give them a moon-like glow.
The Romans created the first birthday cakes. To commemorate weddings and the occasional 50th birthday (only if the birthday male was a notable citizen; women’s birthdays were not recognized until the 12th century), they baked cakes out of flour, nuts, yeast, and honey.
In Germany, children’s birthday parties became popular. Birthdays were probably first similarly celebrated by the Germans to how we do now. Kinderfeste (which sounds like an excellent name for a German theme park) was a child’s festivity in the 18th century. A cake was topped with lit candles in the morning. However, the child won’t blow them out. Instead, they were utterly burned all day until the cake was served after evening.
The Industrial Revolution was the great leveler of the playing field. Thanks to mass production, everyone, not just the one percent, could now buy an exquisite multi-layer cake. Ingredients, utensils, and ready-to-eat cakes all become significantly less expensive. Everyone gets some icing!
