So today is my Birthday, So I figured I would put up fun cake facts to share.
1. It has been said that if the cake falls while baking it is a sign of bad luck in the coming year. Coins, buttons, and rings were baked into cakes – the guest who received the slice with the coin was guaranteed riches in the future; the ring signified marriage.

2. The largest cake ever created weighed 128,238 pounds and 8 ounces and had 16,209 pounds of frosting. It was created in celebration of the 100th birthday of Fort Payne, Alabama and was made in the shape of Alabama.
