Kransekake is considered the “queen of Norwegian cakes” and Nordic cooking expert and cookbook author Patrice Johnson will help you construct your own traditional cake tower during this fun interactive baking experience. During this special online cooking class, you will learn how to prepare this almond wreath cake baked in graduated rings.

This Vesterheim cooking class is designed as a small-group cook-along and we invite exchange between the instructor and students in order to build community around food traditions. In this same spirit of sharing, we invite the whole family to experience this collaborative cooking and learning process. Only one registration is needed per household.

Supplies: Students will need special kransekake pans, which are available through the museum store (linked here). You will also need a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.

The listed class time is one live Zoom session on January 8, 2022 (2:00-3:30 pm CT).
