I took a birthday trip to birthday November of 2016 and one of the food I tried whilst being there was Kürtőskalács .

According to Wikipedia it is is a spit cake specific to Hungarian-speaking regions in Romania, more predominantly the Székely land made from sweet, yeast dough . The way in which is made is through the raised dough which get  strip is spun and then wrapped around a truncated cone shaped baked into split I guess and oh rolled in granulated sugar .

Once that is done it is  roasted over charcoal whilst it getting basted with melted butter, until its surface cooks to a golden-brown color. During the baking process the sugar stuck on the kürtőskalács is caramelized in a way and forms a shiny , crispy crust . And the surface of the cake can then be topped with additional ingredients such as ground powdered cinnamon or walnut.
