Birthday Cakes By Post, A Long Tradition Reinvented

Bring a smile to your loved one’s face: The convenience of birthday cakes by post

Cakes have been a staple in celebrations for centuries. The Romans celebrated birthdays by ritualistically making and eating cakes as part of the dies natalis (birthday) tradition.

The modern idea of a birthday cake, as we know it today, began to develop in Germany in the 18th century. The Kinderfest, a celebration of a child’s birthday, featured a sweet cake called geburtstagstorten, decorated with candles – one for each year of the child’s life, and one extra for the coming year.


Sending birthday cakes in the post is a modern approach to show your love and surprise a cherished person on their birthday, no matter their location.
