20. MARYLAND: Smith Island Cake at Smith Island Baking Co. in Crisfield
There's cake then there's Smith Island Cake, which consists of 10 (TEN!) layers of cake and delicious frosting. Originally, in the 1800s, it was the dessert that wives sent out to their husbands who harvested oysters in the local waters, then Smith Island Baking Co. started up in 2009 to preserve and share the tradition.

The Best Part: Now you can order this towering cake in divine flavors like caramel cream, cooked coconut, chocolate peanut butter, and even red velvet.
