Europe in many dishes, 22: Glorious cake in La Glace, Copehangen
Nearly all the cakes were gorgeous layer cakes--these types of cakes are Danish favourites--featuring lovely cake layers sandwiched with whipped cream or custard or mousse. The cake we chose(and shared!) was called Volmer Sorensens Jubilaeumlagkage, and was a deliciously extravagant concoction made of layers of creamy nougat in whipped cream, with a macaroon base, apricot jam, vanilla custard, marzipan and green hazelnuts. The bill for coffee and tea and one cake came to 175 kroner--around $37! But never mind, it was one of those things you should do at least once!
