Funny Birthday Quote ~
we pour out more funny birthday quotes, though, let's take a little walk down birthday cake history. It is always nice
to have an idea on where some of our traditions came from.
Brief History of Birthday Cake
Many believe that the
word "cake" traces back as the early 13th century. The roots of the word are
said to have come from an Old Norse word, 'kaka' - and the present Danish word
for cake is almost similar: It's called 'kage'.
You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.
~ Bob Hope ~
The origin of the birthday cake dates as far back. However, the birthday cake of old was very different from what we know today.
Historically, the Greek would make a round or moon shaped honey cake or bread to
take over to the temple of Artemis
(Goddess of Moon). Some scholars consider this the origin of the birthday cake -
which is usually still round in shape.
general, most of the birthday cakes made in earlier times consisted of a round
shape. Many historians believe that the shape had to do with the beliefs and
customs of people within that time.
Like, for instance, wanting the cake to
be round, like the moon - or the Earth.
All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much.
~ George Harrison ~
Other scholars however, maintain that the real birthday cake tradition only started later, in the Middle Ages within Germany.
that time, historical accounts point to the Germans making sweetened bread,
which they would form in the shape into the form of baby Jesus in a swaddling
cloth. The point of this, of course, was to commemorate the birth of Jesus.
Funny, though, that they would then proceed to eat the baby Jesus ...
on, the birthday cake re-emerged in German culture as part of the Kinderfest
celebration ('children's party'), which was geared towards the celebration of a young child. In
addition, they also made another type of special cake referred to as Geburtstagstorten
('birthday pies'), which was a round cake/pie baked in layers - and now we're
closing in on what we think of as a birthday cake today.
When someone asks if you'd like cake or pie, why
not say you want cake and pie?Lisa Loeb
Within the Western culture, people serve a pastry or dessert to a person on
their birthday, referred
- no surprise -as a birthday cake. Usually before serving the cake,
people decorate it with the person's name, in addition to a message of
congratulations. For the most part, the number of candles placed on the cake
depends on the age of the individual.
you're getting old when you get that one candle on the cake. It's like, "See if
you can blow this out."
~ Jerry Seinfeld
occasion, some people have the tradition of placing one extra candle on a cake
in order to give the birthday person good luck. Generally, the cake consists of
a spongy texture. The most popular flavor tends to be chocolate.
Vegetables are a must on a diet. I suggest
carrot cake, zucchini bread, and pumpkin pie.
