Prinsesstårta or Jordgubbstårta

It’s been four years since Grandma Glasses contemplated making the Swedish Prinsesstårta. After a successful bake of the Jordgubbstarta, she decided it is time to face her fear of failure making the Prinsesstårta.

“I will not stop until I conquer this cake,” Grandma Glasses muttered while going through the recipe.

“I can always buy a dozen eggs if I fail the first time. I know I can make a cake as pretty as those I see on the internet. Or even better than those we had in VeteKatten,” she mumbled to herself.

“I will not stop you on that. I will wait to see them baked and I finish all the cakes for you,” said the Swedish Chef.

If that was meant as a compliment or a challenge, let a clean plate decide. And whether it comes out good or not, the Swedish Chef always likes what Grandma Glasses bakes.

Jordgubbstårta for the Swedish Chef

Where’s the cake? Just in time as I topped the cake with the last strawberry and a loving kiss, I greeted the Swedish Chef.

“Cheers and Happy Birthday to you!”

Swedish Crayfish Sandwich

Kräftstjärtar smörgås (crayfish sandwich) is one of the best Swedish food you have to try. You can make this in 5 minutes and finish it in 3 minutes. Yum!
