The kransekage (literally wreath cake) is a traditional Danish (kransekage) and Norwegian (kransekake/kransekaka) confection, usually eaten on special occasions such as weddings, baptisms, Christmas, or New Year's Eve. Kransekage take the form of a series of concentric rings of cake, layered on top of each other in order to form a steep-sloped cone shape—often 18 or more layers—stuck together with white icing. Kransekagee cake rings are made with almonds, sugar, and egg whites. The ideal kransekage is hard to the touch, yet soft and chewy.
