A Brief History of Birthday Cakes
The tradition of birthday cakes goes all the way to the time of the ancient Egyptians and the celebration for their gods. The day they coronated was referred to as the day they were born.
The Greeks followed this custom and included a cake in the festivities. They would design moon-shaped cakes, then make it a centerpiece with candles, and offer it as an offering to Artemis goddess of moonlight. After the candles had been lit, they were interpreted by the light that was shining toward the moon.
Cakes for birthdays haven’t always been the way they are present day. Sugar was viewed as gold dust, which was expensive and hard to find. It was the only way that the wealthy could have the money to buy it.
