There’s something about cake that makes all people happy. It’s one of the simplest yet most meaningful gifts that you could ever give anyone – and it’s something to be shared! I’ve yet to come across someone who doesn’t feel happy about getting a cake from someone 😁. A home baked one is always especially well received.
There a whole science behind baking cakes – the biochemistry and a fascinating history. If you interested then please do read: https://www.theguardian.com/science/blog/2010/jun/09/science-cake-baking-andy-connelly
But regardless of how cool the science and history behind it is, the BEST part of the cake making experience is the look on someone’s face when they get a cake. Some of my best memories are giving people cakes that I baked for them – sometimes not even baked for specifically for them. Bring a pretty cake into a room and watch all the faces light up and smile. Such a joy thinking about it….
