Venue Change: 'Sekler Cake Festival', Gesztenyés Garden, 13 – 15 October
These sweet delights will be the main attraction of this traditional event in the heart of Budapest. Go to taste various types and sizes of this special kind of 'smoky, crunchy cake' which will be presented in a variety of flavours and with creative toppings. As well as Sekler cakes, there will also be special raspberry rings, plus `Kurtoske` a popular mini Sekler cake.

From the organisers:

Apart from the irresistible sweet smell of our chimney cakes, refreshing concerts and talented performers will entertain the public. Indygo, (a Hungarian pop band) s going to perform their Sekler Cake song, a song composed exclusively for this festival, on the very first day of Kürtőskalács Festival.

Those who register in advance will be offered an exclusive opportunity to make their own chimney cake. We are sharing the secret recipe with the lucky participants who will be trying to break the record for collective Sekler Cake baking.
