Birthday Cake - a cake eaten to celebrate a birthday with candles on it that indicate the age of the birthday person. Historically, this custom came from the Romans, who in the 8th century celebrated the birthdays of friends and relatives with a sweet round cake made of honey and cheese. This tradition has survived, but it was in the 1400s that birthday cakes were introduced. And these were exactly the cakes we love today - delicious layered pastry with glaze.
