Poor Marie Antoinette — history and her critics erroneously scorned her for admonishing poor starving Parisians to eat cake when bread was unavailable, but we understand the sentiment. Few things are as much fun to look at, or eat, as cake. Baked in molds, layered with dough, filled, glazed, frosted, and decorated — no matter what form they take, people around the world love to celebrate or mark a special occasion with a special cake.

In Hungary, the delicious-looking Dobosh torte is layered sponge cake with chocolate buttercream. In France, the far Breton is a pudding-like cake, and the moon cake in China is made with four eggs as part of the recipe to symbolize the four lunar cycles. From China to Sicily, Jamaica to Morocco, there are sweet treats for every palate. Here are 10 delicious variations from around the world that you should try next time you’re craving something for your sweet tooth.
