A Birthday Cake FAQ

What are the most popular birthday cake flavors?

Vanilla and Chocolate remain the most popular birthday cake flavors, however Red Velvet and Salted Caramel have gained significant popularity over the last few years.

What is the history of birthday cakes?

Birthday cakes date all the way back to the Greeks, who would make cakes to honor the moon goddess Artemis. The candles were intended to represent the moon’s glow, while the smoke from the lit candles would carry wishes to the various Greek Gods.

How long does a birthday cake stay fresh?

It depends on the cake. Standard bakery cakes can stay fresh for a couple of days (up to 4 if refrigerated). Those with fresh fruit don’t tend to last as long and MUST be refrigerated. Cake with whipped cream will only last 1 – 2 days, even in the fridge, so make sure you eat that quickly!

Can I freeze leftover birthday cake?

Most birthday cakes can be frozen for enjoyment later. Although I do find that ones with fresh fruit, specialty icing, or whip cream do not thaw out as nicely. But just because you can, doesn’t mean you should… enjoy your cake now! 🙂

Can a birthday cake be left out on the counter, or do they always need to be refrigerated?

Most cakes with standard buttercream frosting can be left out for 24 hours, as long as your home temperature is well regulated (around 72° F). Cakes with other types of frosting, such as cream cheese frosting, can be left out for a short period of time, but should be refrigerated beyond that.

Is Red Velvet cake just chocolate cake with food coloring?

Not quite. Yes, a lot of the “red” you see in today’s Red Velvet cakes is based on food coloring. However, although both Chocolate and Red Velvet cakes rely on cocoa as a base, Red Velvet cake also uses a unique combination of buttermilk & vinegar that create a softer, richer cake than standard Chocolate cakes. In the end, they are similar – like cousins – but not the same.
