It is a scandinavian tradition to have “kransekage” and champagne at midnight New Years eve.
“Kransekage” is made of almond paste, icing sugar and egg whites. I always make my own instead of buying one from my local baker, it also taste much better. This is the one I have made for our New Year celebration tonight.
I wish you all a happy New Year 🙂
cakegirl: I will most likely post about it next week so be sure to come back.
I just saw the pans in a local cooking shop in Pennsylvania! Do you have a good recipe for the kransekage? I’ve had them at weddings in Minnesota. We are Norwegian and the entire state is populated with Scandinavians and Germans, of course our families have been in the US for over 100 years. Thanks for your inspiring ideas! -Kim
I will soon have a new post ready!!
Wishing you a very happy and joyous new year!!

Zara, you should try it someday. I guess it can not compete with your chocolate mousse;-) but maybe???
