Baumkuchen means "tree cake" .. It is a layered cake resembling the rings of a tree because it is made by pouring layer after layer of batter typically 15 to 20 layers on a spit over heat so that you end up with a multilayered circular cake .. It is a traditional dessert in many countries throughout Europe and now a popular snack and dessert in Japan and are used as a return present for wedding guests since it resembles a ring...
