100 year old cake found

Report  Web Desk : New Zealand: Conservators from the New Zealand-based Antarctic Heritage Trust discovered the 106-years-old treat in a hut on Cape Adare in East Antarctica. According to a statement released by the trust, the cake probably dates back to the Terra Nova expedition of 1910-1913, led by British explorer Robert Falcon Scott. Made by Huntley & Palmers, a company that has been in business since 1822, the cake was found ‘still wrapped in paper and encased in the remains of a tin-plated iron alloy tin. In fact, the sturdy pudding has aged even better than the tin it was kept in, which was discovered in poor condition. 02
