Cakes are probably one of the best inventions in the world. Perhaps the best invention since sliced bread – and not before because many cakes are reliant on bread for their mixture. There are countless different types of cakes and they are perfect for a range of different situations and to celebrate a range of different special occasions. It’s not coincidence that it’s traditional to enjoy cake on a birthday or at Christmas – it’s because this is one of the most enjoyable and decadent ways to eat for a special occasion. Cakes are the bane of dieters and while many people have difficulty giving up their chocolate and alcohol, it’s often the cakes that they really can’t stop cheating with and that they find themselves constantly steeling slices of.
There are also many different kinds of cake and different people will have different favorites. There is no one who doesn’t like cakes, because there are so many different kinds of cakes that you will be sure to like at least one of them.
Being able to supply cakes is something that everyone needs to be able to do to make a good host. If you want to make someone feel happy and comfortable in your home then offering them cakes is ideal. It’s the perfect desert for after dinner and is expected to a degree, and if you don’t offer a cake many people will be disappointed. Finally you need to be able to offer cakes on birthdays and Christmases and if you’re a parent this is especially important.
To offer the most popular cakes you need to find either the best cakes manufacturer in your area, or you need to learn to make them. You also need to know which cakes are the most popular ones that you are likely to have the most luck with. Here are some of the world’s most popular cakes to help you choose.
Chocolate Cake: This is the truly indulgent cake for those who aren’t watching their weight. The combination of chocolate, sponge and icing is one that is hard to resist and just the texture of the creamy chocolate on the top and in the filling is enough to make most grown adults drool.
Sponge Cake: Sponge cake is light and sweet and this makes it perfect comfort food that doesn’t leave you feeling very stuffed and heavy. It also goes perfectly with custard, and can form the basis of many other kinds of cake.
Apple Crumble: Many people like apple crumble because it allows them to believe that they are getting one of their five a day (though it’s nice, attempts to convince yourself that apple cakes are healthy are somewhat futile). While this isn’t true however it’s certainly healthier than a lot of other cakes and it is also sweet in the natural and delicious way that apples are.
Carrot Cake: Many people are confused by the fact that a cake can contain carrot – a vegetable – and still be tasty. Actually though this contrast works perfectly and you’ll find that it is completely delicious and something a bit different and not quite as sickly as many other cakes.
