And it can be attributed to the versatile dishes that have been transformed in different countries under national factors. For example, in Romania, cakes are baked only for major holidays, as Christmas or Easter. In Switzerland, the traditional cake is called pear bread. It is very light and always sweet, stuffing is used in a lot of fruits and nuts. And in the Bahamas, fruits and nuts, designed for filling, aged in rum for 2-3 months!
