What is a raisin cake?

Therefore the Moabites wail,
    they wail together for Moab.
Lament and grieve
    for the raisin cakes of Kir Hareseth.
Isaiah 16:7

Dried grapes were pressed together almost like a power bar.  The raisin cakes depict prosperity and good times.  They were offered as a peace offering, but other times used in Pagan rituals.
