"Cake! Everybody loves cake! Cakes have layers!"
- Donkey, Shrek
Would you like to learn how to draw an easy cartoon cake? This food-themed drawing tutorial is here to help you master the easy cartoon cake outline.

Layer cakes like the one in this illustration are especially popular across Europe and North America and have been for hundreds of years.
Wedding cakes are one example of this. Though various cakes and pies have been served at weddings since ancient times, the modern wedding cake made its debut at the wedding of Prince Leopold of Britain in 1882. Wedding cakes are often tiered and decorated with flowers.
The cake in our illustration also has a candle on top. This is common on birthday cakes around the world.
The celebrant may be invited to blow out the candles and make a wish. This might be traced to candles honoring the goddess Artemis in ancient Greece.
Whatever the occasion, it's time to sketch a tasty cake and enjoy a slice!
