Beautiful images of cake pictures can be found in pretty much any family album. And If you stop and think of it, you'll find cake pictures on every PC, every USB stick and every camera phone picture roll.
Now Think back, is there any special function that you were invited to that a cake was not to be found for that celebration ?....I'm still thinking and I can't remember even remember 1 occasion ...lol - Cake Pictures at any event are the "Icing on the cake " to your party.
There is something special about taking cake pictures or being involved in them. They seem to validate the theme or the event itself. Depending on the function, the guest of honor, the happy couple or the entire family all taking turns having their photo recorded...by the cake.
I myself have taken many solo cake images....for me they are a must have photo as part of documenting any grand event or small function that is being celebrated.
Looking back in history, cakes date back very far into the past and across different sections of the world.
During the era of Vikings, this culture referred to them as "Kaka" and during the times of Roman dominance the wealthy and affluent families created cakes that included flours, sweeteners and nuts that were fashioned onto a round flat mold.
I clearly remember as a kid how much I loved cake, any cake. Looking forward to my birthday party and the dreamy chocolate delight that my mom made for our family to eat in record time. Just as delicious as the cake itself, having my photo with the cake was and still is just as special. Cake pictures to celebrate my birthday and document the growing family from year to year. Each birthday year, we as parents make sure to get the appropriate flavored sweet treat for our kids. Documenting them as they grow another year older, these photos capture the growth of the family, the changes in fashion styles and thus make people reflect back to that moment.
Over the course of time we are invited to many party functions. No matter where the function, a banquet hall, a hotel, heck even my old basement, did you ever notice that at most or all of these functions you are invited to that the cake sits all alone. Just sitting there, but unafraid of being tampered with prior to the time of being photographed and then cut ? I definitely have noticed and get a kick out of it.
One thing I've noticed over the years is that absolutely no one ever dares to touch or disturb the grand cake prior to pictures and ceremonial cutting. Even at a young age, in the backs our minds, we somehow know that eventually the cake pictures need to be taken. We wouldn't think of touching all that delicate and decorative mouth watering bundle of sweetness.
There are those of us that have real fond memories for the classic Movie -"Field of Dreams". They utter the classic line of "If you build it, they will come " Even after all these years, that particular sentence still seems so important to me. In a similar vain, tell anyone that you were at a function and cake was left over, their reaction will be one of....did you bring some in ? I'll be right there is a familiar response when you ask someone over for cake and coffee.Their minds quickly let the stomach know that hey...."leave a little room, we are about to indulge in some awesomeness" ( sorry if this isn't a word ) but the meaning is correct though.
