These Are The Holiday Cakes People Are Devouring Around The World

Which would you like to try?

The holiday season is upon us, which means — very soon — most of us will be digging our forks into something delectable while surrounded by people we love. But the traditional holiday treats we plate can vary from country to country. 

The folks over at the travel site Taxi2Airport decided to look into the sweet treats that are enjoyed around the world during the holiday season and put together an infographic that shows some of the most-loved seasonal cakes. 


From baklava in Albania, to kersttulband in the Netherlands, to rum cake in Jamaica, there's a lot our palates can learn from this sweet guide. In addition to the infographic, the travel site included some great recipes to try these dishes for yourself and make your table a little more international this year.
