When you “take the cake,” you carry off the honors. The phrase originated in the U.S. with cake-walk competitions, which were popular in African-American communities of the South in the 19th and early 20th centuries, from about 1870.

The couple judged to be the most stylish would “take the cake.” Cakes were generally as stylish and elaborate (and costly) as entrants’ outfits, and a fine prize.
