Kransekake for wedding

I spent some time this last weekend baking a Kransekake for a wedding. Kransekake is my absolute favorite cake.
For those of you that reads this, scratch your head and say "Kranse...what?" A Kranekake has eighteen graduated almond paste rings. It is made from almonds, egg white and powdered sugar. ( So both gluten and fat free).
It is the signature cake of Norway and a staple at anniversaries, birthdays, and holiday celebrations.

In this case the bride wanted to add some of her Norwegian traditions to the wedding and the cake was a natural choice.

Owl eyes...

My favorite part. Assembling. Decorating with icing.

The cake was dressed with pink paper flowers

ready for the ball
