A History of Cakes

Nikki from Crazy Delicious got me thinking about the history of cupcakes and how they were named.  In an effort to dig up some alternate theories to the one listed on her calendar, I ran accross this website, a timeline of sorts with all kinds of cake history and facts.  I was going to email it to my mom & sisters since we are all cake people, but then thought it would be a lot easier to find again if I posted it here.

So, enjoy your journey through the history and lore of cake.  But enter at your own risk.  It can make you very hungry….
