We always want to enjoy every moment of our life to witness innumerable memorable chronicles. In every occasion, cake is the ineluctable part of the occasion. A cake infuses emotional merriment in our hearts. When I hear about cakes, it reminds me of one of my friends, Anik whose irresistible desire over cakes provoked him to spend all his savings to get the rare berry cheese cake by delivery from a traditional cake shop.
Lets checkout some of famous cakes from around the world:
