How Hard is that to Make? It’s a Piece of Cake!

How Hard is that to Make? It’s a Piece of Cake!


On this day, we celebrate one of the world's favorite desserts ― cake. More than just for birthdays, the cake we know and love today evolved from early leavened breads, which were sweetened with honey, fruit, and nuts. Did you know that the word "cake" comes from the Old Norse word, "kaka," meaning a baked flour confection? Medieval European bakers often made fruitcakes and gingerbread. As there was no refrigeration in those days, these foods could last for a few months.

Whether your favorite is vanilla, chocolate, red velvet, or even cheesecake, grab a slice of your favorite cake to celebrate this delicious day!

Want a cake quickly? Look no further than the Bakery Department at your local Fiesta Mart. Our Master Bakers have whipped up a number of cakes especially for the season. We also have Tres Leches Cake (three milks cake) made with real whipped cream, sheet cakes, layer cakes, pound cake, coffee cake … just about any kind of cake your sweet tooth desires. And get this! We can even take a photo of that special someone in your life and transpose it onto a cake! How fun is that? If you don't see the cake you want - just ask! Stop by your local Fiesta Mart bakery and request a cake to order. Please give us up to 72 hours to prepare your cake. Remember - perfection take a little time!

Sometimes the best things come in small packages - and that's why we also have cupcakes! These tiny delights are great for school holiday parties because you don't have to worry about bringing a knife and  plates, slicing the cake, and making sure your favorite kitchenware makes it safely back home. Our cupcakes are already preportioned and ready to devour! Icing and even sprinkles make them even more fun!
