Cake love: an unusual Norwegian wreath cake decorated with Australian native flowers


Norwegian wreath cake decorated with native Australian flowers

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.
