Smith Island Cake
Ingredients: At least 10 layers of cake, which can be made from scratch or from a packaged mix, with layers of chocolate icing in between.
Fat content: Most recipes will have around 26 grams of fat per serving, enough for an entire day.
The state adopted the Smith Island Cake as its official state dessert in 2008. That's right, the behemoth treat became so popular the governor signed the cake into law! The cake gets its name from a remote island in the Chesapeake Bay.
