Kransekage is Danish word which is literally translated as "ringcake" and actually refers to an almond ring cake consisting of increasingly smaller and smaller rings stacked one on top of each other, creating an upside down cone form. The cake rings are decorated with white icing, and the cake is decorated with red-and-white Danish flags made of paper. On extra special occasions they will cover a bottle of champagne. Kransekage is typically served with champagne on New Year's and to celebrate such extra special occasions such as weddings, birthdays and wedding anniversaries The tradition in Denmark and the rest of Scandinavia for weddings and other celebrations always calls for this special cake called a Kansekage. The idea of having a Kransekage goes back many years. Some say as far back as the 1700's. It is made from an almond paste and formed as several rings stacked on top of each other in smaller and smaller rings, topped with flags and decorated with several party favors. In Denmark, it is said that the couple keep the last four (4) rings of the cake in the freezer for a year and then they finish it off during their first year wedding anniversary. Kransekake is also called as Cornucopia Cake.
