CLEARWATER, Fla. - Jan. 28, 2021 - PRLog -- "The history of chocolate cake goes back to 1764, when Dr. James Baker discovered how to make chocolate by grinding cocoa beans between two massive circular millstones. In 1886, American cooks began adding chocolate to the cake batter, to make the first chocolate cakes in the US and thus starting a tradition spanning several centuries. Chocolate cake is made with chocolate. It can also include other ingredients. These include fudge, vanilla creme, and other sweeteners," said Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center

"The 27th of January happens to be National Chocolate Cake day. While chocolate cake has an amazingly long and sweet 250-year history, it also happens to have been a favorite of L. Ron Hubbard, adventurer, humanitarian and Founder of Scientology," added Skjelset. "I stumbled upon this fact while reviewing one of the vignettes in the visual library about the life and legacy of Mr. Hubbard. It turns out that in addition to all the exotic foods he sampled and appreciated from all over the world, he most definitely liked chocolate cake."

This story was told by Ms. Gloria Padilla who as a young girl in 1939 was a neighbor of Mr. Hubbard and his parents in Puget Sound, Washington.

Gloria remarked, "His mother, Mae Hubbard, packed this lunch for us and she said, 'Would you like to bring it up to Ron and meet Ron?' and of course I was delighted. And of all things, it was pigs in a blanket and a seven-layer chocolate cake, because he liked chocolate cake!"

For those who'd like to experience the full story for themselves, or take a self-guided tour showing basic Scientology beliefs, Churches around the world, ongoing social programs and the life of L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology's founder they can stop by Sat 1pm-7pm and Sunday 10am-1pm and 2pm-7pm.

"No matter what one's beliefs are or religious affiliation, all are welcome," added Skjelset.
