In English, Frankfurt Crown Cake. No, it is not made of hot dogs, it is a traditional cake from the city of Frankfurt am Main.

From http://www.ukgermanconnection.org/kids_new/?location_id=15:

Gugelhupf - German cake
 
The Gugelhupf is a typical German cake. Kids in Germany often get them as birthday cakes, covered in chocolate or icing or smarties. They are not difficult to make - but get an adult to help you!

"L" is Lady Baltimore Cake

Everything is connected through BBM - Owen Wister, mentioned below, was the author of The Virginian, the cowboy novel some of us were reading in our book club here!:

Lady Baltimore Cake: A Southern specialty with many recipe variations. A favorite wedding cake, this mountainous cake is a white cake topped with a boiled or "Seven Minute Frosting." What makes the cake so distinctive is the combination of chopped nuts and dried or candied fruits in its frosting.

1906 - Owen Wister (1860-1938), a popular novelist, picked Charleston, South Carolina, as the setting of his new romance novel. He modeled the central character, Lady Baltimore, after one of the city's former belles, Alicia Rhett Mayberry. In the novel, Lady Baltimore created a cake also called "Lady Baltimore."  Wister's description of the cake sent readers of his novel scrambling to find the recipe, which had not been created yet. In his novel, Wister wrote:

"I should like a slice, if you please, of Lady Baltimore," I said with extreme formality. I returned to the table and she brought me the cake, and I had my first felicitous meeting with Lady Baltimore. Oh, my goodness! Did you ever taste it? It's all soft, and it's in layers, and it has nuts - but I can't write any more about it; my mouth waters too much. Delighted surprise caused me once more to speak aloud, and with my mouth full, "But, dear me, this is delicious!"
