National Cake Day is on November 26. We believe Marie Antoinette said it best when she (allegedly) said “let them eat cake!”
We’re not sure the peasants of 18th century France were too fond of the sentiment but nevertheless, we’ll take her advice to do just that!
The most obvious and fun way to celebrate National Cake Day is by putting on an apron (or not if you wish to get flour all over your clothes), and preheat your oven! You can make one from scratch or use a little help from the little box at the store.
You provide the base and they provide the creativity. Invite your friends over for a night full of frosting and laughs, and judge the cakes by the best, worst, and most creative designs.
Everyone loves a nice treat at work. Surprise your co-workers by bringing in a homemade or store-bought cake. When people ask what the occasion is, the answer is simple, “It’s National Cake Day, duh!”
Cakes come in different shapes and sizes, and flavors! The options vary from chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, funfetti (my personal favorite), and strawberry, to name a few. Not to mention the endless possibilities of frosting and filling!
Cakes are known for their fluffy, moist consistency. These traditional desserts deliver the perfect amount of sweetness (sugar), carbs, and butter— all the ingredients that make it so delicious.
A cake is almost always covered in frosting and special decorations, which alone, is a cause for celebration. Any cake can have a traditional foundation that provides a canvas to get creative. There are even shows on TV that celebrate the art of cake decorating.
