In 17th century England people were not allowed to celebrate Christmas. So a candy-maker invented the candy cane. Shaped like a shepherd s crook to symbolize Jesus, it has three thin stripes to represent the Trinity, and a larger stripe to represent the life Jesus gave up for us.
In the Middle Ages, guests brought sweet buns that were placed in a pile over which the bride and groom kissed. The taller the pile, the more prosperous the couple. This evolved into the tiered cake we know today. This Wedding Cake ornament serves as a keepsake of the special day or anniversary.
Cake is the delicious centerpiece of parties and celebrations. Today, red velvet cake recipes typically use red food coloring to get the distinguishing look. During World War II foods were rationed and beets were used in cake recipes to retain moisture and enhance the red color of the cake.
