Tastes like Royalty

Give it a try!

Now, I’m aware that what you’re about to see looks anything but appetising, but please take my word when I say this is one of the most delicious cakes I have tasted in my life! (And I eat a lot of cakes!)

Let me introduce you to the Princess Cake!

Prinsesstårta (Princess Cake)

This funny looking fancy is sold in Swedish store Ikea. I come across it about two years ago whilst having dinner in the Ikea Cafe and after being drawn to the name of it I just had to try one. I was very weary of it first of all, but much to my surprise it tasted the opposite of what I expected! The centre is filled with sponge, jam and cream, and the cake itself is topped with a mild tasting marzipan.

You can buy the cakes in boxes of four to take home with you and you can also buy them from the in-store cafe.

    I can totally relate to the fascination of Princess cakes indirectly. I used to have a housemate who was obssessed with these Ikea luxury cakes! I did try one and I admit I loved them too! They were not what I expected from looking at them first. I can say they are awesome and really tasty and definately worth the monies for what they are! They don’t look appetising but believe me they are!!!!
