A Kyiv cake or Kiev cake (Ukrainian: торт "Київський") is a brand of dessert cake, made in Kyiv, Ukraine since December 6, 1956 by the Karl Marx Confectionery Factory (now subsidiary of the Roshen corporation). It soon became popular all over USSR.
The cake has become one of the symbols of Kyiv city, particularly by its brand name and package, depicting the chestnut leaf (the informal coat of arms of Kyiv).
