At the top of the cake chart is chocolate cake, being crowned as the world’s most popular cake, with a global monthly search volume of 394,050. This rich cake is the most searched for treat in 81 different countries. Red Velvet takes second place receiving a whopping 322,310 monthly searches across the globe and is a favorite in 43 countries, including Greece, Peru, and The Bahamas. It is also crowned Europe’s most preferred cake with 14 countries.

Taking the third position is Angel cake with over 33 countries searching for the layered multi-colored sponge, being especially popular in many African countries.

The UK’s favorite cake can be looked upon as a bit of a surprise, as traditional favorites such as carrot cake, Victoria sponge and fruitcake are overshadowed in favor of the Lemon Drizzle. Research shows that the lemon soaked sponge is searched for over 11,000 times a month in the British Isles and 128,570 times across the globe, ranking in at 9th place overall for the total number of monthly searches worldwide.

Historically, the different variety of cakes across the globe have ranged in flavor and presentation based on the type of ingredients available in each nation and the taste preferences developed in each country throughout the years.
