Nearly every occasion in life includes a meal and dessert. One of the more popular desserts is cake. It is a good choice because it can be made in many sizes, styles and flavours. It is almost unimaginable to have a birthday, anniversary or wedding without a cake. They are perfect for celebrating holidays, special events such as graduation and even for celebrating no event at all. Cakes are sweet and offer flavors such as chocolate, spice cake and nearly any fruit flavor. They can be served plain, with no icing. For special events, they can be decorated with just icing or embellished to resemble nearly any form. Special occasions can be observed with cakes that are shaped as favorite characters. For variety and utility, cake is the often the perfect dessert.
