A Norwegian tradition earning pride of place for all special celebrations from Birthday’s to Weddings, Christmas and New Years. The Kransekake is a splendid flour less, gluten-free alternative to standard celebratory cakes.

A tower of handcrafted delicious chewy almond wreaths decorated with traditional ribbons of fresh white Royal Icing, fabric ribbons and tiny Norwegian flags.  Very pretty and very Scandinavian – one of the hottest cake trends in Europe right now!
