A Brief History of the Birthday Cake
Long ago, people believed that a successful celebration was a good omen for a prosperous year. A birthday becomes a celebration when there is a beautiful cake on the table. Birthday cakes have been an important part of every birthday for a long time; according to some historians, the custom of making birthday cakes started in ancient Rome with honey and bread. A Roman's 50th birthday was celebrated with a honey cake made of wheat flour, cheese, honey, and olive oil.
Candles on Cakes
Placing candles on top of cakes is a practice that dates back to ancient Greece. Cakes with burning candles were used in the worship of the goddess Artemis. Many ancient cultures believed that the smoke from the candles carried their prayers to the heavens.
