13 Cake Cafe Experiences

Posted by Lifecruiser in Odditys, Food, Swedish

Yesterday we took a day trip with my sister to Norrtälje, a small town 6 Swedish miles north of Stockholm. The reason for going there was that it has been a wish of my sister for a long time now to visit their famous Café “En liten smula” (means “A little crumb”).

The Café has an award winning owner, Therese Wikström - one of Swedens best pastry chef’s. Therese has worked in first class restaurants in both Sweden and other countries and have had Jan Hedh as mentor, which is a pastry chef Master and has World championships titles in the baggage. She has won prizes every year in row now.

When she was working on a restaurant in New York, she introduced the Swedish Semla on the menu as a dessert. The americans loved it. (Read what a semla is: Lifecruisers Semla)

This is a very small Café in a very old town house and the rooms are decorated like your visiting someone in their home, giving a very comfy feeling. We sat in the kitchen. Even though we didn’t find her best masterpeices in the Café, there still was a lot of delicious things - don’t you agree…?

    Wow those look good! I think I just blew my diet by looking at them. I’ll have to go console myself with the chocolate fondue my friends and I will be eating tonight. Hmm, that might be counter-productive. Should taste awfully good though.

    Robin from Israel (brand new to TT)

    Lifecruiser: Warmth welcome Robin :-) Well, OK, that chocolate fondue didn’t sound so bad that either…. *droooling*

    Mmmmmm… when IIIII come to Sweden, you MUST take me there! I want that chocolate and blackberry thing! And now you have me wondering… are Swedish Miles different from “other miles”???

    Lifecruiser: Of course Melli!!! With pleasure!!!

    Yes, your 1 mile = 1.609 344 kilometer. Our “mil” = 10 km.

    Since 1889 when the metric system were finally introduced here, when we say 6 swedish miles, that’s actually 60 km, not quite like yours 6 miles huh? *lol*

    So that should be 37,5 miles of yours with other words :-)

    What a clever entry to TTT. I’m not at all tempted, as I don’t eat cakes, unless I have to. :-))

    But when in Norrtälje, hm, I might pop in here, ONLY because of these wonderful pictures. Just to check out if they are real or not. LoL.

    By the way: Thursday is MY day. The English don’t even know to write or pronounce it correctly. It is TORsdag; rember that.

    Lifecruiser: Sure… *lol* Yes, we’ll remember torsdagar from now on ;-)

    Lifecruiser: Yes, why don’t you? *teasing you* *lol*

    You are going to so blow my diet! Those look so yummy!


    Lifecruiser: Sooo, a little pause from the diet huh? *s*

  11. Susan said:

    holy cow it all looks so scrumptious!!!! I might have to go get something to assuage the sweet tooth you have awakened with all this! thanks hugely and happy TT :)

    Lifecruiser: I’m just dreaming back…. *s*

  12. Dave said:

    Those look sooo good. Up here in the mountains fried pie is considered “gourmet” pastry. Normal sweets like pies and cakes are pretty good. But I can really go for stuff like you can bet at the “little crumb”.

    Lifecruiser: Fried pie… OK, I’ll guess it would do too in case of emergencies ;-)

  13. Dave said:

    That’s “get” but you can “bet” I’d like one of those things with the rose in the center.

    Lifecruiser: Yes, that is a “sweetie” huh? *lol*

  14. Nathalitanis said:

    OMG, those look absolutly delicious!
    You got me all hungry now! :mrgreen:

    Have a great weekend!

    Lifecruiser: I know :-) You to!

  15. Debbie said:

    Yummy they all look delicious. But my fear is the weight I might gain if I gaze too long up on them. The one in the second column third down looks like little sweet boobs for the taking! Hmmm….hubby would like those!!

    Lifecruiser: He he… yes, I also got this association :-)

    Looking at those pictures makes me want these Swedish cakes for dessert every breakfast, lunch, tea, dinner and supper! They look super yummy, and I love (adore) European cakes! :lol: :lol: :mrgreen:

    Lifecruiser: You should only see the smorgas cakes we can do over here…. *teasing you* (That’s something that I really drool over!!!!)
