Inside: The most aesthetic cake ideas you’ll find on the internet.

That is not clickbait folks; below this paragraph holds a list of some of the most aesthetically pleasing cakes you will ever see. If you love cake as much as I do, your heartbeat is definitely quickening right now. 

Cake is one of the most simultaneously loved and overlooked desserts. Sure, you have it at every birthday or celebration…but nobody appreciates it.

No one sees how many different flavors it can come in or how many different styles. On the list of favorite desserts, the cake is sometimes left off of the list entirely, and this is just unacceptable. 

Cake brings us all together. It’s something for us to gather around, sing around, and dance around (if you are really that into it). So today, we are going to spend some time appreciating it. 

Aesthetic Cake Ideas You'll Love

Look below for inspiration if you have a birthday or celebration that requires a cake. I have pulled together some of the cutest and most aesthetically pleasing cakes from around the internet.

Now they sit here, waiting to be seen. But before this, let’s briefly discuss the history of cake.

A Brief History of Birthday Cake

It is known that cakes were originally made in Egypt, but they didn’t look like what we know them as today. Back then, they were flatter, being cooked on a hot stone, and the end result didn’t even have frosting. Small beginnings!

The most important part of the Egyptians cake was that they learned how to utilize natural yeast for its rising properties in baking. This was the foundation that was built upon over time.

As time went on and technology advanced, we started adding things to our batters such as eggs, milk, sugar…basically all of the little things that make our cake today what it is. 

We got to where we are slowly over the course of many centuries. Who would have thought that cake has been for so long? 

They were thought of as a symbol of love and became the staple dessert at many weddings around the globe. And they still are today. During the 17th century, cake was something to be held in the highest honor because only the rich could afford it. This is where the famous quote by Marie Antoinette comes in, “Let them eat cake.” 

This, of course is the quote that cost her her head because she said it in regards to her starving peasants who couldn’t even afford bread. 

Cake has truly persevered throughout time, and we have landed here in the 21st century. The styles and flavors are as unique as they come. Take a look through these with a newfound appreciation for this time machine of a dessert.

Cake truly is the dessert that brings people together. Whether it is a birthday, a celebration, or even a going away party, cake is always present. I think it is about time that we give it the recognition that it deserves, don’t you think? 

We can do that by trying all the different kinds of cake that we can. Gone are the days of simple chocolate and vanilla; in are the days of berry composes and Cream Brulee topping! All jokes aside, whether the cake is simple or complex, small or large, just appreciate it in all its yumminess. It took many years for it to get here.
