"A party without (a) cake is just a meeting” is a saying that has been printed on many posters, with the saying almost always credited to American chef and author Julia Child (1912-2004). The saying has been cited since 2008, although Child died in 2004. There is no known documentation that Julia Child ever said this.

I believe that was Mrs. Child who said something along the lines of, “A party without a cake is just a meeting”.
