Amazing Cake Designs

The first cakes were actually small sweet breads. They were usually made by baking a mixture of flower, eggs, fat, sugar, and leaving agents. Flour,like vanilla or fruit, were also added at times. It wasn't until something around the 17th century that these sweet breads began to resemble the cakes that we know today. However, around this time, bakers started adding icing and frosting to cakes. Cake icing is often one of the most important aspects of the cake decorating. Once the cake has been backed,the icing can be shaped and molded into decorating designs. Other objects, like shaped candies, can also be added to decorate cakes as well.
