What is chocolatey, light, decadent, and moist? Devil’s food cake, of course! Today is a celebration of this delicious dessert, which is considered the counterpart to the classic white angel food cake. Devil’s food cake has a unique light and moist texture, which sets it apart from other chocolate cakes. The recipe calls for quite a bit of baking soda, and boiling water instead of milk. Both of these ingredients contribute to the fluffiness of this confection.

Devil’s food cake first appeared in the United States in the early 1900s. It is quite similar to red velvet cake and the names are often interchangeable in some parts of the country. To celebrate National Devil’s Food Cake Day, make some divine devil’s food cake to have for dessert tonight!

What would you like to have to eat today? Go ahead and have any and all of your favorite foods and snacks. Because today is Eat What You Want Day.

Eat What You Want Day is definitely not a day for diets.  It is one single, solitary day in the year to go off your diet and eat something you really enjoy, Today, you can set aside your dietary “No-No” list. Today, you can splurge. Tomorrow, it’s back to the diet. It is important to note that today is not intended to eat as much as you want. Rather, the goal is to eat something you otherwise wouldn’t have.

International Dance Day was introduced in 1982 by the International Dance Council.  The main purpose of Dance Day events is to attract the attention of the wider public to the art of dance. Emphasis should be given to addressing a new public, people who do not follow dance events during the course of the year.
