Swedish Visiting Cake



  1. That Swedish Visiting Cake looks delicious!

  2. Scrumptious! Thank you, so very much!

  3. Fika is a 'ritual' taken seriously in Sweden. That mid-morning coffee brake is religiously practiced just about everywhere... Case in point... a couple of weeks ago, we were sailing in the fabulous Stockholm archipelago and by 2 2 strikes on the ship's bell (10 am), we pulled up behind an island out of the wind, to have our Fika... very civilized... BTW, love that cake...(If you happen to live close to a Fabrique Bakery, they have some very good Swedish cardamom and cinnamon buns, perfect for Fika...
