If you're a proficient baker you've probably perfected your signature cakes, but when it comes to different kinds of cake from other parts of the world, how many can you claim to have heard of let alone tried baking?

Thanks to this fun infographic from mrgamez (below), you can check how your knowledge measures up on 17 cakes from around the world and decide what you'll be adding to your recipe repertoire.

Depending on the time of year, there are also some characteristic bakes used to celebrate depending on where you are in the world. Take your pick from Bibingka, the traditional rice cakes cooked in clay pots lined with banana leaves and enjoyed during Christmas time in the Philippines to mooncake, a Chinese dessert cake enjoyed during the Chinese mid-autumn festival.

Each cake comes with a description as well as the all important baking time and flavour profile meaning you can take your pick whether you have a free afternoon or just spare 20 minutes to knock up a halva ... a piece of cake.

Take a look and see how many you've tried.
