International Chocolate Cake Day

International Chocolate Cake Day

The chocolate cake was born in 1765 when a doctor and a chocolate maker teamed up in an old mill.  They ground up cocoa beans between huge millstones to make a thick syrup. The liquid was poured into molds shaped like cakes, which were meant to be transformed into a beverage. This day is a perfect excuse to indulge in this wonderful creation!
