Chiffon Cake is very light and aerated and remarkably simple in appearance. It is eaten all over Asia, where it has become a top favorite.
Harry Baker, a one-time California insurance salesman turned caterer for the stars, is generally considered to be the creator of Chiffon Cake, and this around 1927. Apart from personal orders for stars’ parties, he also made it for a local restaurant, whereby all accounts, it was the only dessert on the menu! Mr. Baker finally retired sometime in the 1950s, but by then the Chiffon Cake had become a favorite.
Asia loves Chiffon Cakes. In fact, unlike any other cakes, it is eaten daily. It can be decorated with icings, candies & other decorations; and is often served with drinks such as coffee, tea, fruit drinks, & even sodas.
