What is a cake? Just a piece of bread. No! A baked desert. No! Or a well defined combination of flour, sugar, oil and eggs. Certainly not! Cakes are much more than this. It is a main dessert to enhance any kind of ceremonial occasions.

Cakes are actually my favorite     dessert. The way its bread melts and dissolves in the mouth, I just love it. Me and my sister love to bake cake in our leisure time. My family loves it. There are different kinds of cakes available in the market. For instance, cheesecakes, sponge cakes, butter cakes, yeast cakes, etc.

The term “cake” has a long history. The word itself is of Viking origin, from the Old Norse word “kaka”. The Greeks invented beer as a leaven er  frying fritters in olive oil, and cheesecakes using goat’s milk.  In ancient Rome, basic bread dough was sometimes enriched with butter, eggs, and honey, which produced a sweet and cake-like baked good.

Early cakes in England were also essentially bread: the most obvious differences between a “cake” and “bread” were the round, flat shape of the cakes, and the cooking method, which turned cakes over once while cooking, while bread was left upright throughout the baking process.

Cakes can be classified according to occasions also. Some of the most common events or types that involve yummy, delicious, mouth watering cakes are:
