NORWEGIAN CAKES. Most celebrations in Norway are celebrated with kaker! And not just one, but with many cakes! There is a Norwegian expression called kakebord, which translates to cake buffet. Cake can be served up to several hours after dinner. Birthday celebrations or other parties can include many cakes. Weddings, for example, often have over 20 cakes on the kakebord.
A common cake eaten for birthdays in Norway is bløtkake, a cake which has two layers of cake with whipped cream in the center and on top and covered with berries.
Marsipankake (marzipan cake, sometimes also called princess torte in the US) is another popular cake for many occasions. It also has layers of cake with a fill of whipped cream and berries but is topped with a layer of marzipan.
Another common cake is kvæfjordskake, sometimes referred to as verdens beste kake (the world’s best cake) as it was voted by Norwegians to be the national cake of Norway based on its popularity. It has two layers of cake, two layers of meringue and sliced almonds and a custard center.
