Cake Fun Facts for Kids

Everybody loves cakes, especially Sydney children’s cakes by premium bakers like Black Velvet Cakes. These simple desserts are the centrepiece of any celebration, and they evoke feelings of togetherness, happiness, and festivity. 

Most of us think nothing of it, but cakes have a long history and a lot of stories to tell. In this post, we’ll dive into some of the most fun and interesting facts about cakes that your kids will love to learn!

Royal Icing Really Is Royal

Royal icing is a simple icing made from softly beaten egg whites, icing sugar, and sometimes lemon juice. So, why is it royal? This cake staple was recognized as “royal” after it was used to coat and decorate Queen Victoria’s wedding cake in 1840–this cake became the first to have pure white icing on it.

Old Wedding Cakes Were Made Out of Bread

Create a sophisticated photo album that captures the essence of your loved one's most cherished memories. Consider a skilled artisan or a bespoke bookbinding service to create a stunning, handcrafted leather or linen-bound album. 

You can customise the cover with embossed or gold-leaf detailing, such as your loved one’s name or a significant date, to transform the album into a one-of-a-kind keepsake. 

Just make sure to fill the album with carefully selected pictures, ensuring that each image evokes a special moment and watch the recipient's eyes light up as they receive their gift.

The World’s Most Expensive Cake Cost $75 Million

The world’s most expensive cake was the Runway Cake, designed by prominent cake maker Debbie Wingham. The cake was commissioned for a birthday and was designed to look like a fashion runway. It was 1.8 metres long, adorned with edible model figures wearing fashionable clothes and accessories. What made the cake expensive was the abundance of gemstones added, which included $45 million worth of multi-coloured diamonds.
