I don't know if its an international thing, but here in South Africa, you get a cake called a Snowball sold mostly at bakeries and cafes. It is basically a ball made of two domes, slightly pyramidized, and stuck together with jam or icing (I prefer the icing myself), and coated with some kind of sugary red substance on which dessicated coconut is sprinkled liberally. It is quite tasty, and I used to go nuts for these when I was younger. Now that I'm older and stupider, I don't eat them.
