What is a chimney cake? It’s a Hungarian-Transylvanian pastry, traditionally prepared only for weddings and other special occasions. But at Long Island City’s Chimney Cake, you can score one of these towering tubes of sweet, sugar-glazed dough any time. The café offers the pastries with a variety of toppings, like coconut, cinnamon, chocolate and ginger, as well as new spins on the traditional baked good, like a savory version with cheese and ham.
