List Criteria: Cakes only!

The best cakes on the planet also qualify as some of the best desserts in the world. Who doesn't love a delicious cake? No matter what side you're on in the "cake vs. pie" debate, almost everyone can admit that a good slice of cake is one of life's finest pleasures. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, the question is: which types of cakes are the absolute best? Does the classic chocolate cake take the crown? Or do more mellow flavors like vanilla and Angel food appeal more to your palette? All the best cakes from every culture are on this list ranked from best to worst. Suffice it to say: if you are looking for a crowd-pleaser, you should consult this list for ideas on different types of cakes that people love the most.

Whether you think the best cake is Funfetti birthday cake or that there's nothing better than an ice cream cake or carrot cake, this list has them all. The best cakes make the best desserts, and if you ate all of the tasty cakes on this list, you may never get out of the heavenly food coma that results.

What are the best, most popular cakes? What are the most delicious cakes? What is the best cake for a special occasion? Is a yummy cake better than a fancy cake? What are the top 10 cakes? All these questions and more will be answered in this list of the best cakes for every occasion. If you can't find a delicious cake on this list that you want to nom right now, maybe you're just a pie person.
