Polish Sękacz / Lithuanian Šakotis, "branch tree cake," or bankunchenas in Western Lithuania... Older than German Baumkuchen.
Polish sękacz is a popular Lithuanian-Polish traditional cake. It became popular during the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth (1569–1791). Its origins are attributed to either the Italian Queen Bona Sforza or the Baltic tribe of Yotvingians. Its name means "branched tree" or "tree with many branches" due to its distinctive shape. It is baked by painting layers of dough onto a rotating spit in a special open oven. It is drier than a German Baumkuchen.

Lithuanian tree cake...so do you eat it or decorate it?
Lithuanian tree cake (raguolis or shakotis) being made...batter is poured onto the spit in layer after layer, so that when a piece is sliced off, it has what looks like tree-rings. Not big on flavour (kinda sponge-cake-y), but the point here is the spectacle and sheer use of resources involved. These cakes are usually made only for very special occasions like weddings.
birch tree forest. The ancient Celts invented a primitive whip called the birch rod or birch from these trees. It was made of 4-5 branches tied together by twine. The Celts had much respect for the tree and it's part of one of their zodiac systems. A person who is under the birch sign is a natural leader.

I have a soft spot in my art and design heart for poster art. There, I admitted it. I know it's not glamorous, and I know it's considered by many to be a kind of 'low art', but I love it anyway. I've often thought that, if I could re-design it entirely, the interior of my life would be an art deco high rise - very clean - with poster art on the walls. (But what would an art deco baby's nursery look like, I ask you?) My studio is filled with clippings and bits of art that inspire me, and among these are several 'magpied' posters. I stole them because I love them, and they are some of my most prized possessions. So, without further delay, here is a brief homage to poster art: I know part of the reason I love bold, graphic designs can be blamed on an early introduction to Aubrey Beardsley: Still one of my favorites, the eternal Alphonse Mucha: A Classic: Love: A Polish poster: Posters from the USSR: AND some modern producers who will be quite happy to sell you gorgeous copies of their art: Lovely work from St Louis by The Bungaloo: Local St Louis Favorites, Firecracker Press: Now go buy some art!
