According to legends, in the Roman culture, cakes were served to guests during special occasions like weddings. Initially, these cakes were made in flat circular shapes with ingredients like flour, honey and nuts.
During the 15th century AD, the German bakeries introduced single-layered cakes for birthday celebrations in the market. This banished the myth that a cake can only be cut at weddings and led to the creation of the tradition of cutting a cake on birthdays.
Cakes went through a lot of changes and modern-day cakes were only introduced later in the 17th century. These cakes were coated with cream, decorated with beautiful icing and were also available in different shapes.
Later in the middle of the 19th century, even the Western European Countries started cutting cakes on birthdays and in no time the tradition spread all across the globe. (image credits- istock)
