    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!

    Never been a fan of cheese cakes, but this one does indeed look quite delicious...

    Wouldn't be the last one to let my teeth sink into that one....

    Keep the cakes coming Ladies and Gentlemen.... I'm going to make a cake tonight, I might (just might) show you the result of my (very limited) skills later on...

    This is the cake!

    I found another! This one is a winner! Cheese cake with cherries and cherry sauce from ****ens, Kong Olav V's plass, Bergen, adjacent to Torgallmenningen, nearest neighbour to Blåsteinen and Wesselstuen. Recommended!

    Danish delicacies

    Since danish delicacies are brought up, I have to mention the jordbærterte med vaniljekrem - strawberry cake with vanilla cream - on Cafe Norden in Copenhagen, famous all over Scandinavia. Every time I visit Copenhagen, I have to check out if this wonderful delicacy is still "alive and kicking" - and so far - it is!

    They certainly were! Konditori La Glace is an absolute must-do on any visit to Copenhagen – having received that ultimate CVF accolade “As recommended by Lady C and Lady E

    So light and fresh and totally melt-in-the mouth . . . nothing short of a revelation!

    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!

    Is "tårnkake" and "kransekake" the same?
    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, 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.....
