    #2, #5 were the best

  14. Vadim says:

    The first one is Zefir not Beze. Beze is hard whereas zefir is soft. You forgot Kiev cake and Tort Napoleon. How I’d love me some Napoleon right now, mmmmmmm.

  15. too much vodka says:

    Kartochka is the tastiest – and by the way, fist to say first!

  16. Chris says:

    I LOVE Lemon bars/cakes. :-) Here in the US they are usually shorter and denser, but still have that great taste, and the powdered sugar goes everywhere. :-)

  17. Olesja says:

    The first one is not “beze”, it’s “zefir”. It’s a soft, marshmallow type sweet. Beze is hard and melts in your mouth. Yum to all those sugar bombs though!

  18. Josie says:

    Ahhh, childhood memories :D Can’t find none of those goodies around here where I live now.
