This is a long overdue post...
It was my husband's landmark birthday in December and I promised
to bake him his favourite dessert, the Swedish Prinsesstårta
It was my first attempt, and I must say
I'm quite proud of the outcome.
The cake is essentially made up of layers
of sponge cake, creme patissiere, raspberry jam and whipped cream.
It is traditionally shaped like a dome and covered with marzipan.
The result was quite satisfying
I have always love marzipan and to my delight,
my homemade marzipan was much more superior tasting than the shop bought ones.
And most importantly, it got two thumbs-up from the birthday boy....
