Are You Ready for National Cake Day?

November 26th is National Cake Day!

Triple Delight 2

Who even knew we had such a holiday?  Much more importantly, why didn’t anybody ever TELL ME about it?  There I was, a dedicated cake-lover, complete unaware, not eating cake when I clearly should have been.  All those wasted years…

Armed with this critical cake-related intelligence, I will right the wrong this year.  (Cue inspiring patriotic music…)  I will celebrate National Cake Day!  Better yet, let’s do it together.  Here are three suggestions to get this awesome, under-served holiday the attention it deserves.  Use it or lose it, right?

Throw your coworkers, family, or neighbors a National Cake Day Party!

November 26th is the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, so it’s the perfect excuse to have fun before everyone hunkers down to eat turkey.  Who wants to be all nose-to-the-grindstone the week before Thanksgiving, anyway?  Nobody.  So help everyone else cut loose a bit early with a surprise National Cake Day party!

Know Your Cake History

Naturally, no Cake Day party could be complete without a surfeit of cake factoids.  For example, did you know that cheesecake dates back to the Ancient Greeks and might have been served at the Olympic Games in 776 BC?!  (I always suspected it was linked to athleticism…)  Or that hunters used to carry fruit cake to sustain themselves on long journeys because it, well, lasts forever?  Prepare a proper Cake Day Trivia Game with info from this fun Foodbeast Cake History Infogram.

Triple Delight 1Serve Great Cake!

This step is a no-brainer:  to properly celebrate National Cake Day, you need cake!  Lots of cake!  If you want to try something a little bit different, a little bit special, then I highly recommend the cakes from Euforia Confections for this year’s National Cake Day.  These Dutch-Indonesian-inspired cakes are delicious, hand-made, naturally gluten-free, and quite unique.  Unless you grew up in Jakarta, you’ve probably never had cake like this before!

Let e explain.  Founder Kartika Castonguay started selling her thousand-layer cakes in memory of her late mother, whose baking warmed many a family occasion during her childhood on the island of Java.  Kartika’s mother passed away in 2007, and founding a company centered on her mother’s native layer-cake tradition seemed the best way to honor her memory and keep this special culinary art alive.  Kartika’s family recipes for Triple Delight and Thousand Layer cake preserve the old-fashioned, meticulous methods of Indonesia’s colonial Dutch community.  (Now there’s something for your cake trivia quiz!)  Filled with spice, crunch, and creamy flavor, these fascinating confections are some of the best gluten-free cake you’ll find anywhere.

Not only are their cakes scrumptious, but the company donates 2% of all sales to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, an organization that supports fund-raising efforts for the fight against pediatric cancer.  That means every order you place for Triple Delight or Thousand-Layer  cakes will help you throw a great party while supporting a great cause.  What more could you want?

So go on, click here to place your order in time for National Cake Day, coming up on November 26th! products can be shipped anywhere in the US.  Euforia Cakes can be stored at room temperature for up to 3 weeks, or for longer in the fridge or freezer.
