Whatever may the occasion be, cakes are a constant celebratory companion. Cakes are after all loved by all. In all events and congratulatory gatherings, there is one primal cake-cutting orchestration that marks the celebrations.
With cakes being the primary source of togetherness and celebration at a party, decorating the cake with minuscule designs is a must. Most of the celebratory cakes are based on themes and are decorative.
Though some individuals assess the event and order the perfect cake for the occasion, many hosts may get nervous while opting for cake delivery in jorhat services.
Here is thus a list of the most popular cakes no matter what the occasion is:
1. Pound Cake
You have to admit, humans are a fan of simplicity. And, for all the fancy cakes in the world layered with toppings, a simple slice of pound cake and a cup of coffee is the chosen delight. It is so rich and satisfying in itself that it needs no frosting, owing to its 1:1 ratio of all ingredients, including butter and eggs. This also makes it a simple cake to whip up at home!
Nowadays many vegan and eggless versions of a pound cake can be found for parties.
2. Black forest cake
Originating in Germany, according to Wikipedia, “Black Forest” cake consists of several layers of chocolate cake, with whipped cream and cherries between each layer. Then the cake is decorated with additional whipped cream, maraschino cherries, and chocolate shavings. In some European traditions, sour cherries are used both between the layers and for decorating the top. Traditionally, Kirschwasser (a clear liquor distilled from tart cherries) is added to the cake as it happens to be a very popular romantic celebratory cake.
3. Carrot cake
A vegetable in a cake! It turns out that the practice of carrot cakes originated in the middle ages when sweet flavourings were difficult to come by due to the sweetness of the carrots. But it was only really revived during the 1960s, at which point the classic cream cheese icing was added.
Carrot cakes are very healthy and can be used for parties and get-togethers with attendees who are on a strict diet.
4. Coffee cake
What most people love about these cakes is not that they taste like coffee (they are not actually required to contain any coffee flavouring), but that they are rich in spices and not overly sweet, making them a good breakfast alternative.
Again a good celebratory cake for people on diet and even for hosting housewarming parties or any tea time event.
Though commonly associated with New York City, the love of cheesecake actually goes back as far as ancient Greece and was adopted by the Romans. There are many contemporary versions of cheesecakes available today. The choice you make can be based on how heavy or light creamed you want the cake to feel on your palette.
Though cakes are generally associated with celebrations, you are free to enjoy them as a feel-good dessert. So what are you waiting for? As they say, go and have your cake and eat it, too!
