Verdens Beste - Kvæfjordkake

This cake is the first cake I learned to make after arriving in Norway. It is called "Verdens Beste" (the best in the world) or "Kvæfjordkake". It is made of a layer of cake, a layer of french merengue and topped with almonds. Then there is a layer of whipped cream and vanillacream and on top there is a new cake with merengue and almonds. You can find the recipe of this wonderfull cake here on the site of passionforbaking.

Here some pictures of the process of making the cake. I use to make a big cake, cut in two halfs and put those halfs on top of eachother

The first cake layer spread out

A nice and stiff merengue. The important thing: whip the eggwhites very stiff and add the sugar in small amounts. Whip and whip untill really stiff.

Ready to put in the oven, 25 min on 175 degrees C.

Ready amazing cake :-)
