When we celebrate many different occasions we serve specially decorated cakes.
When there are weddings, christenings, engagements, anniversaries, birthdays and all the holidays. Especially, Christmas cakes have a really long history and were invented by the rich in the 18th century.
There were even traditions like putting a bean and a pea, which are hidden and baked in the fruit mixture. And then whoever found the bean was crowned “king of the feast” and the founder of the pea “queen of the feast”. But longer tradition has the wedding cakes. There is a story of their development that best illustrates the history of the cake craft as an art.
The first appearance of the decorated cakes was in England, during the reign of Elizabeth I. From then, the cake craft in Sheffield became really popular. At this stage, wedding cakes were baked as tiny separate cakes, more like buns with a sticky coating of almond paste. After that, with the developing of this culinary art, the things have changed. Most of the people wanted to have modern cakes at their wedding. Like today’s cakes which can be five feet high and covered in flowers, figures of the bride and groom and whatever else they want.
It is fashionable to use fondant sugar paste icing for the cake. It is made from sugar, water, gelatin, butter, and glycerol. It makes the appearance of the cake much better, a clean and polished look. It is preferred now for all types of cakes – wedding, birthday etc.
But the traditional buttercream icing is a classic choice for decorations. It is known for years and is the most common. It is still chosen for desserts and cakes. And the cake craft in Sheffield keeps developing as well.
