Birthday Cake Ideas
Having a cake at a birthday party is a tradition that many countries have, including America. Today most party rentals in Miami offer cakes with other rental services. If you need anything to make your party experience complete, most companies can accommodate you. They also offer bounce houses for rent, water slides and more.
Birthday cakes were first made in Germany during the middle age for kid’s birthdays which they called kinder fest. The cakes were simpler than we know now, as they were like bread.
Later on, this version got better when they added sweets. The icing and decorations like flowers and layers were added in the 17th century, but these were not accessible for everyone, but the upper class. By the 18th century, food and baking utensils were more affordable and ever since cakes have been part of every birthday party.
