Happy 50th, EU! -- the 27 National "Birthday Cakes"

All through 2007, the member states of the European Union celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, the signing of which established the EU in its initial form as the EEC.

While the official EU birthday cake was cut in Malta, it was accompanied by a gathering of cakes representative of every member nation -- two cakes per country -- which were served to the heads of state when they met for the official birthday celebrations in Berlin. The official list of the cakes is here.

We're still working on featuring all the cakes here, in separate articles at our site. On the master list below, you'll see links to the ones we've done articles on so far:
