    Have you had your dessert today? If not, think about piling into something sweet and refreshing since it is international cake day today!

    According to AnyDayGuide website, International Cake Day was invented in Russia. 

    It was founded by the international non-commercial project, the Kingdom of Love, that specialises in cultural and humanitarian initiatives. The authors of the project believe that the cake can be viewed as a symbol of friendship and peace that are essential for better understanding between the nations. 

    The celebration was launched in 2011 under the motto "I cake you" and had its own theme chosen by the organising committee every year.
