History of Cakes

History of Cakes

In early times, the term "Cakes" and "breads" were used interchangeably.  

During the Roman period, cakes were more closely made as cheesecakes, whereas the early Greeks liked to make theirs more like bread covered with nuts and honey. 

 By the mid 19th century, cakes as we know them began to arrive on the scene. 

 Refined flour and baking powder became more readily available.   
By the 20th Century, butter-cream frostings replaced boiled icings and the modern day cake gained popularity.   

The first boxed cake mixes arrived on the scene in the 1920s and 1930s. 

  In 1947, General Mills introduced the "just add water" cake mix and in 1948, Pillsbury won the market with a Chocolate cake mix.
