Jan27 Fun Holiday – Chocolate Cake Day
Chocolate Cake Day on January 27 celebrates everyone’s and their grandma's favorite cake.
Take a break from healthy eating and indulge in chocolate cake by having it for every meal on this awesome food holiday.
A New Invention
While cake as a sweet treat and chocolate as a drink have been around since ancient times, chocolate cake is a fairly recent invention. It is believed that the world's first chocolate cake was baked around the late 1800s after Bostonian Dr. James Baker discovered that one could grind cocoa using a water powered mill.
Since then, chocolate cake has rightfully become its own category of cake, with many different styles of chocolate cakes baked and consumed around the world. Some of the more popular types include German chocolate cake, Black Forest cake, chocolate fudge cake, and molten lava cake.
Chocolate Cake Day is also known as National Chocolate Cake Day in the United States.
Chocolate is a very popular theme for a fun holiday. Other chocolate flavored holidays are Chocolate Pudding Day, Milk Chocolate Day, Chocolate Pecan Pie Day, Chocolate Milkshake Day, Chocolate Cupcake Day, and Chocolate Covered Anything Day.
