    The second sentence is also correct because you are referring to types of cheese cake

    It is similar to the fish/fishes question in another post.

    Food is an uncountable noun meaning food in general.

    There is lots of food on the table.

    Foods refers to types of food

    There are foods from several countries on the table.
