Kransekake - The Traditional Norwegian Wedding Cake

I almost forgot about this one. I made this for my Brother's wedding, kind of like a groom's cake. It is stacked concentrical rings, 18 total, made from an almond paste dough. Each ring is securred with a simple sugar frosting, thin to get the "squiggles" to drape frem betweent he layers.

Is this a traditional kind of cake for your country? It looks yummy...how do you cut it?

My heritage is Norwegian and my Grandmother passed her set of cake rings to me. The almond paste dough is pressed/placed in a ring for baking. There are 6 pans in the set each with 3 sizes. After baking you start stacking, the largest ring from each of the six pans, then the center ring and finally the inner rings. I wish I had had the pans when I got married! Love to incorporate our heritage in as much as possible.
