The purpose of cake is mostly for celebrating - it’s almost compulsory to have cake at a birthday, wedding etc and eating it is usually the best part. Today, however, we have a different ball game and the aesthetics of a cake is often more important than the actual cake itself.

As convenient as it is to order a cake from a trusted baker, it can be really fulfilling to make one at home. Who knows, you might have a hidden talent with fondant?
