Honor a beloved heritage with this six-piece Kransekake ("ring cake") form, which offers a simple way to create an authentic version of the towering Norwegian and Danish delicacy. Traditionally made with almonds, sugar, and egg whites and served at weddings, baptisms, Christmas parties, or New Year's Eve celebrations, the special-occasion cake also makes a tasty centerpiece at family reunions or everyday events. Even more, it fosters a natural and hands-on way to introduce children to the special traditions cherished by their ancestors.
Solidly crafted of heavy-duty tin for durable use from one holiday to the next, the form comes with various pieces that unite to create 18 concentric rings for building a pyramid-shaped cake. The pieces can withstand an oven's heat up to 400 degrees F, and their nonstick-coated surfaces quickly release the cake circles once cooled--particularly important when baking such thin, delicate rings. Best of all, the form cleans up effortlessly by hand with warm, soapy water, and its stackable design stores compactly between uses. Accompanied by complete instructions for making and frosting a Kransekake cake, the form measures 11 by 11 by 1 inches.
