These slightly crispy, flaky cylinder-shaped pillars of dough are referred to as "chimney cakes." As it cools, these cone-shaped pastries let steam out from the top, creating the smoking chimney effect.

This Romanian dessert is made from Hungarian sweet bread that's baked in a rotating oven, then coated with a sweet glaze.
