Birthday cakes were initially called by the name ‘plakous’ by the Greeks, which is a similar word to ‘flat.’ These birthday cakes were a combination of nuts and honey. It is also believed that the Greeks offered round shaped cakes to the Goddess of Moon called Artemis. It is for this reason that candles were placed on the birthday cake to make it glow like the moon. The Romans followed suit with a slight change in the name of the cake which became ‘placenta’ as derived from the Greek term for cake. (‘Placenta’ was a form of cheesecake.)
