Have you always wanted to bake this traditional showstopper of a confection but been too intimidated by the 18 rings, specialty pans, and icing decoration to try? Come learn about the Queen of Scandinavian Cakes – Kransekake/Kransekage/Kransekaka (Norwegian/Danish/Swedish). In this class, you will learn about the history of the cake and many tips and tricks that will help you learn how to master this beautiful creation. (Spoiler alert – It will still take practice.) You will see examples of how the dough should look and feel at different stages and you will practice rolling out the dough to the proper shape and size. Although time will be too short to make a cake, you will take home a great recipe for the cake and icing. In addition, we will spend time sampling some Kransekake and drinking coffee – an unbeatable combination.
Intergenerational Age 10+: It would be wonderful to bring a child or grandchild with you and keep the baking of this traditional cake alive! Adults are invited to share in the fun of learning a new skill with a younger person. Each child must be accompanied by an adult. There is no charge for the additional person, just complete the registration for 1 adult and note the name and age of the child in the comment section of the registration.
General Age Policy:
All classes are for adults (18+) unless otherwise noted.
Be aware we may cancel 5 days before class date if a minimum number of registrations not reached. We work to balance teachers' need to plan for a class with students' busy schedules -- not an easy task. Please register as early as possible!
