It was Farmor’s 70th birthday and Tante made one of her famous cakes for the occasion. The flower decorations were all hand-made with marzipan.
Tante’s marzipan cream cake was the first to be devoured. But luckily Norwegian birthday parties never have just one cake. We also had a bløtkake (cream cake) with pineapple made by Farmor herself and an oreo cake that was bulging with chocolate mousse and took three people to help it out of the tin.
Unfortunately there was no cake left for a creamy Midnight Sun indulgence so we had ice cream instead. Gratulerer med dagen, Farmor!
