Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Cake Day

There are 33 cake-related holidays scattered throughout the year, so it makes sense to also have a Cake Day to make sure any particular types of cakes are not overlooked.

The word "cake" is of Viking origin, from the Old Norse word "kaka".

Early cakes in England were also essentially bread: the most obvious differences between a "cake" and "bread" were the round, flat shape of the cakes, and the cooking method, which turned cakes over once while cooking, while bread was left upright throughout the baking process.

Sponge cakes, leavened with beaten eggs, originated during the Renaissance, possibly in Spain.
