World favourite cakes:
Baking cakes is my hobby, I always look for new recipes from famous chefs to try, also I create my own recipes sometimes.
I prefer a cake with fruits than a chocolate cake, however I love chocolate fudge cake. In this article I have collected information about 20 different cakes from the world mainly the US, to present here with brief details, photos, and videos.
1- Carrot cake
it is a cake or pie which contains carrots mixed into the batter. The carrot softens in the cooking process, and the cake usually has a soft, dense texture. The carrots themselves enhance the flavor, texture, and appearance of the cake
Carrot cake may be eaten plain, but it is commonly either glazed or topped with white icing or cream cheese icing and walnuts, usually chopped. It is often coated with icing or marzipan made to look like carrots. Carrot cake is popular in loaf, sheet cake and cupcake form, and (in the United Kingdom as well as North America) can be found pre-packaged at grocery stores, and fresh at bakeries. Some carrot cakes are even layered.
2- Red velvet cake
Red velvet cake is a cake with either a dark red, bright red or red-brown color. It’s traditionally prepared as a layer cake topped with cream cheese or cooked roux icing. The reddish color is achieved by adding beetroot or red food coloring.
Common ingredients include buttermilk, butter, and flour for the cake and cocoa, beetroot or red food coloring for the color. The amount of cocoa used varies in different recipes. Cream cheese frosting and buttercream frosting are most commonly used.
A chocolate brownie is a flat, baked square or bar developed in the United States at the end of the 19th century and popularized in both the U.S. and Canada during the first half of the 20th century. The brownie is a cross between a cake and a cookie in texture. Brownies come in a variety of forms. They are either fudgy or cakey, depending on their density, and they may include nuts, frosting, whipped cream, chocolate chips, or other ingredients. A variation that is made with brown sugar and no chocolate is called a blondie.
Brownies are common lunchbox fare, typically eaten by hand, and often accompanied by milk or coffee. They are sometimes served warm with ice cream (à la mode), topped with whipped cream or marzipan, or sprinkled with powdered sugar. They are especially popular in restaurants, where they can be found in variation on many dessert menus.

A Swiss roll or jelly roll (or cream roll when so filled) is a type of sponge cake roll.

The cake is removed from the pan and spread with jam or butter cream, rolled up, and served in round cross-sectional slices.
The origins of the term “Swiss roll” are unclear. The cake originated in Central Europe, but not inSwitzerland as the name would suggest. It appears to have been invented in the nineteenth century, along with Battenberg, doughnuts and Victoria sponge.
The shape of the Swiss roll has inspired usage as a descriptive term in other fields, such as in optics and blues music.
A muffin is a type of quick bread of American origin that is baked in portions appropriate for one person. They are similar to cupcakes in size and cooking methods. The can come in both savory varieties, such as corn or cheese muffins, or sweet varieties such as blueberry or banana. The term also refers to a disk-shaped type of bread of English origin, commonly referred to as an English muffin outside the United Kingdom. As quick bread-style muffins are also available in Commonwealth countries, the term muffin can refer to either product, with the context usually making clear which is meant.
A cupcake (also British English: fairy cake; Australian English: patty cake or cup cake) is a small cake designed to serve one person, which may be baked in a small thin paper or aluminum cup. As with larger cakes, icing and other cake decorations, such as sprinkles, may be applied.

Alternatively, “fudge cake” is a term in the American South to refer to a dense, single-layer chocolate cake served with or without icing. It is similar to a brownie, although moister with more chocolate.
One could say fudge cake is very similar to red velvet cake. Fudge cake is not the size of a full-sized chocolate cake, so is more like a pastry. It is also similar to a brownie, as both have dense, chocolaty tastes.
