Created by Swissotel, the 'Let's Get Kutchen' infographic details traditional German baking specialties that have been handed down from generation to generation. The names might be a little hard for non-natives to pronounce, but the desserts themselves will be enjoyable for all.

In terms of cake, the infographic introduces us to German specialties such as the Donauwelle, a red, white and black dessert that's been dubbed the 'Snow White Cake' because of its color scheme. Meanwhile, for biscuits we have another tongue-twister on our hands: the Vanillekipferl is a crescent-shaped biscuit made with ground almonds and coated in vanilla sugar.

This exhaustive list of German pastries and desserts was sourced with the help of a panel of experts: Luis Troyano, Ruby Tandoh, Katie Mazur and Christie Dietz.
