This Is What Cake Looks Like In 14 Countries Around The World


We recently asked members of the Angle News Community to show us what a traditional cake looks like in their country. Here are the most delicious results…

1. Croatia

"I looooooove krempita/kremšnita. It’s from Croatia and I could honestly eat it all day with no regrets. I buy it all the time when I’m on vacation in Croatia or eat some homemade ones from my aunt. It’s a mix of a crispy pastry and a wobbly kind of custard."—mspnamem

“My grandmother is German and every Sunday bakes a cake for the family. This cake is called a Gewittertorte (thunderstorm cake). It’s a layered torte: cake, meringue, slivered almonds, fresh raspberry filling, fresh whipped cream, cake, meringue, and slivered almonds. I am lucky to have her around to teach me authentic German recipes.” —lianarcarvalhop

4. Sweden

"In Sweden we have Prinsesstårta (princess cake). It’s 2-3 layers with spongecake with vanilla cream, and jam & whipped cream in-between. Then it’s green marzipan and a marzipan rose on top. If you want to you can top it of with powdered sugar." —redbike04

6. Denmark

"A Danish Kagemand, which literally translates to 'cake man', is often used at birthdays. The cake consists of a body made of Danishes, candy sprinkled on top, and marzipan spelling out the name and sometimes the age of the birthday kid. They're pretty big and one cake usually feeds about 15-20 people." —mathilderichmanno

"There are multiple Argentinian classics and most of them involve a lot of dulce de leche. Rogel is a cake with multiple layers of crust and dulce de leche, all covered in meringue. Delicious!" —marianal4bc348272

8. Brazil

"We have lots of traditional cakes here in Brazil, like bolo de fubá (cornmeal cake), bolo de aipim (cassava cake) and bolo de rolo (rollcake filled with guava), but my favorite is bolo de cenoura com cobertura de chocolate (carrot cake with chocolate icing). It's the most delicious cake in the world, believe me. My grandma used to bake it every week. Tastes like childhood." — janinha

9. Indonesia

"Kue lapis is a must-have in my home when family and friends come calling or visiting. Each layer is baked using either an open flame or by using only top heat or broiling in a modern oven. The cake is sweet, moist, and rich, and spices are added in to give it a sweet aroma. It's a very rich cake made with a lot of eggs and butter. Therefore, it is usually served in very small pieces." —mayatrainor

“In Colombia, Torta Maria Luisa is what every mom and grandmother want for their birthday, afternoon coffee, or any other situation that requires a cake. I would say that it is our take on a Victoria cake, as it is two fluffy sponge cakes sandwiched between a filling that is usually arequipe (dulce de leche) or blackberry jam. The arequipe one is definitely my favourite.” —camilabolivarg

11. Barbados

“In the Caribbean — I’m from Barbados — we make something called rum cake/black cake. It’s literally just cake made with rum baked into it. It’s a great family dish (yes, children can eat it too).” —hellohellohellohello

12. Libya

"A much loved traditional dessert in Libya called basbousa. It’s a semolina based cake drenched in a sugar honey syrup topped with nuts (usually almonds or pistachios). People came up with many variations of the dessert but the classic one is heavenly!" —ghadah3

“In Puerto Rico you’ll always find bizcocho mojadito. It’s basically a simple cake but it’s soaked in a sugary brandy syrup and frosted with buttercream. It’s usually white with simple decorations but you can pretty much decorate it however you like. It’s a staple in most family gatherings, especially birthdays and it’s mostly created by family members. You can buy it in a store but it’s better if its homemade.” —j4cdec0c99
