Introduction
Cakes were part of ancient global rituals. Made with the grains and fruits of the earth, round cakes symbolised the sun, moon and the cycle of life. Today the shape and decoration are both important. Intricate sugarcraft figures and flowers can be piped, hand-formed or wired. This model was a bakery for over 200 years, with evidence of an earlier site. King Charles II is said to have breakfasted here in 1664.

Cake History
Early cakes from ancient Egypt were like bread, often baked with honey, dried fruits and nuts in balls over the hearth. In the 1650s better ovens and the advent of sugar gave rise to iced cakes baked in pans. Refined potash replaced yeast in the late 1700s. White flour and baking powder were in use by the 1850s. Antonin Careme of France 1784-1833 was the first celebrity cake and pastry chef to be recorded in history.
