Today is National Chocolate Cake Day, so there’s a reason to have your cake and eat it too. 

When thinking of traditional chocolate cake, our minds quickly shift to a traditional, tiered delicacy that needs a huge knife to slice through. Tastewise’s 2023 chocolate cake consumption trend analysis shows that the fastest rising consumer need for chocolate cake is eating it as a snack, and the dominating diet for chocolate cake is vegan. Consumers may love to nosh on chocolate — but they’re seeking a healthier alternative. 

Sweet facts about chocolate cake:

  • Chocolate was invented over 3,000 years ago, but it wasn’t until the 18th century when the first chocolate cake was made by Dr. James Baker
  • 1828: Conrad Van Houten learned how to mechanically extract fat from cacao liquor, making the chocolate cake making process less laborious and cheaper
  • 1847: One of the first chocolate cake recipes was published by Eliza Leslie in The Lady’s Receipt Book, but American households really didn’t begin to add chocolate into their cakes until about the 1880s
  • 1920s: Pittsburgh-based P. Duff and Sons created the first boxed cake mix
  • After the war ended, General Mills and Duncan Hines took over the cake mix market with their cake mixes, making chocolate cake a household name
