    There are two types of cakes: butter cake (also known as shortcake) and mousse cake. The difference between the two categories of cake is the amount of fat. I write blogs for
    UK MyAssignmentHelp and I recently wrote an recopies of foam cakes have little or no fat and eggs usually have a higher proportion. The Greeks called the cake "flaky", which meant "flat". These cakes are usually a mixture of nuts and honey. They also ate a cake called "satu", which is a flat, heavy cake.
