Tall, short, sweet, savory, cakes come in a plethora of flavors and shapes. One cake baked in India measured 17,388 feet long, which is the world’s longest cake. That’s about as long as 435 school busses! Another group of people in Indonesia created a cake that was 108.27 feet tall. The world’s tallest cake! This towering cake was created for a Christmas celebration in 2008 and shaped as a Christmas tree. Along with that you have heard of vanilla cake and carrot cake, but have you ever heard of a BLT cake? Today people are creating a crazy variety of cakes that range from chicken and waffles all the way to cotton candy cakes! Although some cakes have made a remarkable evolution throughout the years, the general concept of cake has stayed the same, and this applies to Applesauce Cake. Applesauce cake is a deliciously moist cake that can be filled with cinnamon, walnuts, and of course applesauce! This has also been a tasty treat for ages. Applesauce cake was most popular around the 1900 to 1950 and on June 6th everyone gets to celebrate National Applesauce Cake Day!
