Gateau is the French word for cake, and this treat isn't just for birthdays. Galette des Rois was the staple cake that was used to celebrate Epiphany's Christian holidays. Although recipes can vary, most use choux pastry with a full meringue or sponge cake with fruit and cream.
Gateau is a very traditional pastry shop in France, and the cake itself was actually only half the battle.
Historically, bakers have placed hidden candy or small toys in the cake and it would be a symbol of good luck if you found one in your slice!

This is a sponge-based Mexican cake that uses three different types of milk! This is also a very sweet and rich cake, so the slices are small and compact when served.
With Pastel de Tres Leches, which has a moist and dense consistency, you can get really creative and replace the milk with anything from eggnog to ice cream.
The origin of this cake has been widely debated, with Mexico, Panama, Cuba and Costa Rica claiming its manufacture.

Angel Food Cake is a divine sponge creation popular in the UK and US, with a light to medium consistency. This treat has been around since the early 19th century, and it was originally made by using whatever egg whites were left over from excess recipes!
Additionally, thanks can be given to the Dutch for the distinctive hole in the middle of an angel cake, as their pans and shapes were far more innovative than any other nation.

German name and German nature, this "cake" can be used as a main meal and dessert! This is a very traditional and historical candy that was popular with farmers in the 17th century.
If you plan to bake it as a main course, ingredients like sauerkraut and spinach are recommended.
However, if you want to bake it as a dessert, the dough should be coated with a fruity filling and topped with icing.
