The darling and decadant Heather from Cake send out Meg’s Makeup an array of delicious products out to try!
Cake, the original four lettered word.
Here’s a brief timeline on how this mainstay decided to live on our hips and thighs
- The first cakes were very different from what we eat today. They were more bread-like and sweetened with honey. This was ancient times. Cleopatra was able to eat tons and still maintain her figure
- The precursors of modern cakes (round ones with icing) were first baked in Europe sometime in the mid-17th century. You are not alone in the struggle, so was your great-great grandmother’s great grandmother.
- The 19th century that cake as we know it today (made with extra refined white flour and baking powder instead of yeast) arrived on the scene. Why do you think the full figured Lillian Russell was the ultimate 19th Century “IT” Girl? She loved some cake too.
Ancient breads and cakes were sometimes used in religious ceremonies. These were purposely fashioned into specific shapes, according to the observance. Round shapes generally symbolize the cyclical nature of life. Most specifically, the sun and moon. Have another bite sweetie, you are helping the circle of life!
- Heather Reier was always interested in beauty products. In 2001, at the age of 26, her passion for indulgence and products had not wavered. After using various products on the market, while she loved many of them, she couldn’t help but feel as though something was missing. She realized that the beauty world needed a line of cremes, suds and scrubs with decadent, nourishing ingredients accompanied by sophisticated packaging and a sassy, fun concept. Keep cooking Heather! Thanks for the slice!
