When we look at the history of cakes, we see that the first modern Baskin Robbins cake in Kuwait in the world in 1727 was a cake recipe in a cookbook that only used eggs to puff the cake.
Baking bread existed before baking cakes, but yeast was used to bake bread.
At that time, they discovered that if they use a lot of eggs in the cake, they don’t need yeast anymore.
It was during the ancient Roman and Greek era that cake baking was developed.
It has come in the history of cake that after Christopher Columbus discovered America, he reached more sources of cocoa and sugar, and this led to their progress until the birthday cake gradually became the present day.
Another point that greatly affected the quality of the cake was the progress in the cooking oven industry.
In 1780, when ovens were produced, lighter cakes were made.
After the Great French Revolution and the destruction of the aristocracy in France, the cake recipe became popular among ordinary people and was no longer exclusive to the aristocracy.
In the 18th century, a French cake maker named “Vatel” created a new method in cake making by inventing a type of cream called “shanty” (whipped) cream.
After the industrial revolution and the progress found in industries and tools, the production of all kinds of cakes, including birthday cakes, became more diverse.
In 1850, baking powder was created, which created a light and soft sponge texture in the cake.
And it was from there that they gradually created cakes in today’s style.
