Your preferred cake says so much about you. Are you an equal-opportunity cake eater? Or are you one who enjoys a simple and soul-satisfying buttery slice of pound cake? Perhaps you love more than a rich taste within a single bite. If so, a scrumptious slice of spice cake would do the trick. Or are you someone who enjoys a little cake with your frosting -- where the ideal ratio is 1 to 1? If so, the Esterházy torte with chocolate buttercream sandwiched between four layers of sponge cake might be perfect for you.
No matter what your cake personality is, the history of cake baking is fascinating in and of itself. A taste for sweetness is a part of human history. According to food historians, the ancient Egyptians were the first to show evidence of advanced baking skills. The first cakes started with bread sweetened with honey, nuts and dried fruits. Today, the various types and piping-designed cakes are so numerous, you may have to ponder the choices with a sweet treat nearby. Whether you are a cake connoisseur or have a fondness for all things sweet, take a quiz that will tantalize your taste buds. When you're done, head to your nearest bakery for that slice of perfection.
