2. Cupcakes: These mini delights trace back to 18th Century America. But cupcakes really took the world by storm in 2000 thanks to a mention on ‘Sex and the City’.

3. Apple Pie: While apple pie is considered quintessentially American, its roots lay in England. It adapted beautifully in the U.S, establishing a bond with the American people that has stood the test of time.

4. Donuts: Donuts were a creation of Dutch settlers. It was however the great Donut Machine revolution in the 1920s that made them a popular choice for breakfast in the US.

8. Macarons: This delicate French cookie took a while to reach its current form. Initially just a plain cookie, it was Pierre Desfontaines who thought to sandwich two together with a ganache filling.

9. Scones: Originating in Scotland, these bread-like pastries can be sweet or savory. Although they were initially a luxurious treat, they are now a common feature on breakfast tables.
