Kransekake Pie

Red Velvet Cake


The kransekake is a traditional danish and norwegian cake, usually eaten on special occasions such as weddings, Christmas, or New Year’s Eve. Kransekake take the form of a series of concentric rings of cake, layered on top of each other in order to form a steep-sloped cone shape often 18 or more layers stuck together with white icing. Kransekake cake rings are made with almonds, sugar, and egg white. Ideal Kransekake is hard to the touch, yet soft and chewy.



The original Kransekake is transformed into a real pie and combined with the typical scandinavian taste liquorice. Great moisture and fantastic harmonized taste. Fits excellent into the typical nordic café style.
