This decadent layer cake comes to us straight from Hungary. A Dobos Torte is traditionally seven layers of thin, slightly dry sponge stacked together with a thick chocolate buttercream. The top later is covered in caramel which hardens and provides a satisfying crunch.
The side of the cake is usually coated with ground hazelnuts or almonds.

A panettone is a sweet cake from Milan, Italy. Italians usually eat it around Christmas and New Year. The cake rises into a big fluff column, and it’s usually full of candied orange, citron, and lemon zest.
Sometimes it also has raisins or chocolate in it. This is more of a luxurious bread than a traditional cake.

This crazy looking cake on a spit comes to us from Germany. When you slice this cake open, you can see all of the lovely rings of batter inside of it.
Adding tiny layer by tiny layer takes a really long time, but the finished product is definitely worth it.

The tres leches cakes is popular in Mexico and throughout Latin America. Tres leches translates to “three milks.” It’s basically a butter cake soaked in three kinds of milk: evaporated milk, condensed milk, and heavy cream.
The actual cake is super light and airy, which is why it doesn’t get soggy even when it’s soaked in three different liquids.

This layer cake from Indonesia is known as kek lapis. These cakes are often baked for religious or cultural celebrations. Sometimes they even have different patterns and colors baked into them.
There’s another layered Indonesian dessert called kue lapis that pretty similar to kek lapis, except it’s made with a soft rice flour pudding.

This Scottish cake is full of nutty goodness. The Dundee cake is a traditional fruit cake with a super rich flavor. It’s full of currants and raisins, and it’s topped with pretty rings of blanched and roasted almonds.
Apparently this cake was invented because Mary Queen of Scots didn’t like glacé cherries in her fruit cake.
