There's more to this sweet, soft and delicious foodstuff. Here's some rich and tasty trivia about it.

What's a cake?
It is any variety of sweetened breads. It is often described as rich and delicate. The first cakes, however, were often biscuit-like as is the case with the "cakes" of the ancient Egyptians etc.

Torte.
This is a kind of cake that is very rich. It is often found throughout Europe and the Viennese of Austria are said to be the most addicted to this rich cake. In fact, the world-famous Sachertorte is being claimed by rival claimants as to who invented it firs.

Chiffon cake.
Did you know that this cake actually came about from the muffin? Actually, it is a modified muffin wherein the eggwhite is beaten separately and blended with the other ingredients.

Event cakes.
Cakes are known to be associated with certain events like the Twelfth-Night Cake of the French (Christmas Season), German Easter Torte, and the Christmas Fruitcake of the United States.

Sacrificial cakes.
There are also sacrificial cakes. In Tibet, these cakes are offered to the deities in Buddhist ceremonies as part of the so-called phyi-mchod, or eight offerings of external worship. The gtor-ma cakes, on the other hand, are realistically colored and modeled to resemble parts of the human body for presentation to the wrathful Tantric deities.

Pinoy cakes?
Do we have Pinoy cakes? Alas, this topic is subject to debate. However, the Visayan torta (a cake-like creation) is a unique creation that may come closest, as it makes use of a very Pinoy ingredient in lieu of yeast. It uses, tuba, or the sweet, fermented sap of the coconut flower as an agent.
