Norwegian almond cake or sucsess cake ! This is an old traditional cake . Easy to make and taste like heaven. I allways make the kake a few days ahead, to let it set, and ansables it the morning of the day I will serve it.
Leftovers can bee freezed.
If you want to make this cakt to have in your freezer ? Freeze the cake and the cream separatly and ansamble the cake when it is thawed.
