Learn the Scandinavian art of making Kransekake just in time for the holidays.

Both Denmark and Norway claim Kransekage (Danish) and Kransekake (Norwegian) as their own. With a nod to both countries, Laurelei will walk you through the steps to create a beautiful 18-ring cake that is typically created for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, baptisms, Christmas, and New Year celebrations. A Norwegian wreath cake is a very special creation! Sometimes a bottle of wine is hidden inside; most often it is decorated with flags.

Made from almond meal, confectioners’ sugar, and egg whites, this cake is a splendid flourless, gluten-free alternative to standard celebratory cakes. Although you can construct a Kransekake freehand, students will want to purchase the set of rings prior to class. Not only does Kransekake look intricately spectacular, it is a delicious treat!

Your instructor will provide the following:

  • refrigerated dough (during class, she will demonstrate how to make it)

Students are asked to bring:

  • Set of kransekake rings (can be purchased online for about $20)
  • apron
  • a plate to hold the cake and a box to take it home

Experience Level
No experience necessary.

Age Requirement
Students ages 18 and older are welcome to attend this class. Adults may bring a young person age 8 or older (let us know you are bringing a child with an email to info@marinemillsfolkschool.org, but they do not need to pay for a separate registration). This is a fun mixed-generation experience — it’s like playing with playdough!
