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)
- a plate to hold the cake and a box to take it home
No experience necessary.
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 email@example.com, but they do not need to pay for a separate registration). This is a fun mixed-generation experience — it’s like playing with playdough!
