Let’s start from scratch, shall we?
History of cakes and their sweet rise to glory
The word cake is from ‘kaka,’ Nordic and Swedish for ‘sweet cake,’ but the earliest versions of cakes did not bear any semblance to the soft and spongy cakes of today. Instead, they looked more like compact discs of dried and pounded grains (think rice cakes), and there was no baking involved.
Ancient Egyptians were the first to start the baking technique, and they used honey to sweeten their bread-like cakes. Greeks and Romans followed suit with cheesecakes and fruit cakes, but it was only in the 17th century that yeast was used, and the baked cakes got a definitive round shape and different decorative icings.
By the 18th century, beaten eggs were favoured as rising agents, beaten thoroughly to incorporate air and poured into moulds. Subsequently, the Industrial Revolution paved the way for affordable baking powder and baking soda, thus popularizing cakes worldwide.
