The prinsess cake is Sweden's most popular cake and is made of a cake base, whipped cream, vanilla cream that is coated with marzpian. The marzipan coating is normally green with a thin layer of sugar icing on top and is often decorated with a red marzipan rose or something similar.
Classic prinsess cakes do not contain jam and has cream (not cake base) closest to the marzipan layer. Prinsess cakes with jam on the bottem and pink marzipan is actually an opera cake.
Varieties with other colors of marzipan coatings are often called prinse cakes or sometimes even Carl Gustav cakes (yellow marzipan coating) and opera cakes (red/pink marzipan coating).
Prinsess cakes history
The original recipe for the prinsess cakes come from the Princesses cookbook from the 1930's that was published by a home economics teacher, Jenny Åkerström, who taught the girls at Östermalm. Among those fans were Prinsess Märtha, Margaretha och Astrid (daughters to prince Carl and prinsess Ingeborg). In the book, the cake is named "Green Cake" but it was then named prinsess cake because the prinsesses are said to have been especially fond of them.
In 2004 the Swedish Association of Bakers and Confectioners instituted "Prinsess Cake Week" the last week in September.
