Cake love: an unusual Norwegian wreath cake decorated with Australian native flowers
Charlie / 8 March 2013
Today’s Cake Love features something a little bit different from the usual sponge wedding cake – it’s called a Norwegian Kransekake (wreath cake). Although they look like biscuit rings, I did a little research and the perfect Kransekake is hard to the touch but soft and chewy.
I love the scalloped icing that is piped round each cake ring and how they have decorated it with native flowers from Australia (it was for an Australian wedding) – but you could equally find seasonal flowers from wherever you are to decorate it with. Here’s another way of displaying it – on top of what looks like a simple white cake (but could easily be a stand?) and finished with a spray of gypsophila.
If you are planning to make your own wedding cake, there is a handy photo ‘how to’ and recipe for this particular Norwegian Kransekake over on Who Does The Dishes.
