What is a Cake?

A cake is typically a baked, sweet food. Back in the beginning of cakes, they were mostly sweetened breads. But nowadays, cakes can be very extravagant and they may cover a very wide range of intricate preparations. On the other hand, some cakes are extremely simple. A cake may begin with a purchased mix that only requires the addition of water and can be cooked in the microwave (using a small microwave oven-safe bowl or mug).

Cake can be categorized by the ingredients and mixing techniques. Some common classifications are:

  • Butter Cake. These cakes are normally made from the basic ingredients of butter, sugar, flour and eggs.
  • Chocolate Cake. A chocolate cake may also be categorized as a butter cake or sponge cake, or any other cake. But all chocolate cakes are flavored with chocolate.
  • Coffee Cake. One might initially think that a coffee cake is flavored with coffee…but NO! Coffee cake is made to be eaten with coffee or tea. Crumb toppings are typical of most coffee cakes.
  • Flourless Cake. Cheesecake is a typical example of a flourless cake.
  • Layer Cake. Sponge or butter cakes can be layered with icing or other filling to create a layer cake.
  • One Egg Cake. Butter or vegetable shortening is added to the cake recipe, which can produce a delicious cake with only one egg.
  • Sponge Cake. These are sometimes also known as foam cakes. The basic ingredients of sponge cake are whipped eggs, flour, and sugar.

Cakes can also be classified by the occasion they will be used for, such as birthday cakes, wedding cakes, or other special occasions. Another way to classify cakes is by shape, such as cupcakes, bundt cakes, cake balls, or sheet cakes. The recipe in this post is for a special occasion, and showcases the bunny tail.

What is an Easter Cake?

It depends on where you live that determines what an Easter cake is. In the United Kingdom and Ireland, they traditionally serve a Simnel cake for Easter. The Simnel cake is a fruit cake with marzipan-like icing.

But, when I was a kid (living in Texas), the traditional Easter cake was a layer cake with what my mom called white mountain icing (made from egg whites and sugar). She would put green colored coconut on top with jelly beans or small chocolate eggs on top. Sometimes, she would bake cupcakes instead of a cake. That was our tradition. but we have a new tradition now!
