    Which is your favorite cake?

    Which is your favorite cake?

    Oh, cakes, who doesn't like cakes?

    I love cakes.... and my step-grandmother (and late mother) is/was a master at so many various cakes. My favorite cake for a long time has been the "romkake" (rum cake).... served as this one sample below.

    The rum cake below was made by my mother and brought on board the Crystal Symphony when the ship came to Trondheim back in 2004 or 2003. We had a wonderful cake party on the bridge sailing out the Trondheims Fjord!



    Yummy!

      Definitely COFFEE CAKE.

      (But don’t even think about asking for a recipe.
      I'm more savory than sweet where actual cooking is concerned.)

      Whilst not cake in the classic sponge cake sense, I have to add how much I LOVE these Swedish delicacies:

      Punschrulle – green marzipan roll with a soft crumbly biscuity filling and the ends dipped in chocolate.

      Mazarin –tart with almond paste filling and icing on top.

      YUMMYYUMMYYUMMY.......

        Battenburg Cake for me. It's my favourite by a long long way, although it wouldn't be good to put a shelf of them in front of me for free.

        Ooooh, I want one now!!!!

          Excellent choice SaintsFCFan! Now why on earth didn’t I think of that one ????? – oh probably because I was limiting the choice to big round sponge cakes in the shape like the lovely one pakarang’s mother baked. (that was before I got thinking about what I choose in Swedish cake shops!)

          But on the other hand there is rather a wide variation in Battenburg which would influence my voting for it. Sometimes there is rather too much jam and excess stickyness around and between the sponge sections which I find totally off-putting. Jam is of course delicious in other contexts, but out of place in a Battenburg.

          [Big giggle I must just share with you all – I’ve just corrected a typo, the first word of the last sentence, where I realised I’d typed “Jan ]

          My ideal Battenburg would have at least double the thickness of marzipan compared with what is normally deemed acceptable for a Battenburg. And I always sort of dissect my slice of that cake so that I can keep a big piece of marzipan for that very last lingering mouthful.

            My favourite has to be ROMKAKE!!
            (That rum cake of Jan-Olavs mother looks delicious!!!!!!!!!!).

            My second choise is the marsipan cake with creem inside, and on third place, the very tasty, but oh so sugary, Tårnkake (Tower Cake)

            So there you go, now it's possible to at least have some idea about how you could please me, should we ever meet.
            And together with some seriously good coffee...., mmmmmmmm...., need I say more....?

              Is "tårnkake" and "kransekake" the same?

              Oh, I love a good marzipan cake also... the best one I have ever eaten was on my birthday on Crystal Symphony... let me see if I have a picture of it.

              It had bananas, cream, strawberries and raspberries, with a generous cover of marzipan... WAOW.....

                Yes, of course! Sorry, for not mentioning that.
                In Kristiansund I belive we've always called it tårnkake, except for the bakers themselves, who called it kransekake

                  Oh... yesss.... both me and Sterkoder loves the "romkake" (rumcake)....

                  Battenburg cake of SaintsFCFan looks great too!.... wonder what's it made of?

                  Here is the rum-cake my mother brought to us navigators in 2003 when the ship came to Trondheim (fresh from the x-ray machine at the gangway to look for brake-out equipment..... ):



                  And the absolutely BEST marzipan cake I have EVER EVER tasted, from the chef's of the Crystal Symphony!

                      I think it's made of two coloured sponge's, jam and wrapped in marzipan.
                      Too much of it can be sickly.... er' um' I did once have too much and it was sickly.

                          Not last year, but that world's best marzipan cake was as much as 5 years ago!

                            Danish pastries here can be . . . errrr usually are . . . rather solid and stodgy. I will never forget the first real Danish pastry I had in, I was about to say Denmark, but it was actually across the Øresund in Skåne.
                            So light and fresh and totally melt-in-the mouth . . . nothing short of a revelation!
