The cake castle, Taxinge slott

Last year Anne and Per took us to the cake castle Taxinge slott, 60 km south of Stockholm. We were thrilled over the amazing cake and pastry buffet, all baked locally at the castle. Since then F has been constantly talking about it, despite our fullness after the visit as we had too many cookies and cakes. So when my parents were visiting last week we decided to go to the castle and it was a huge success. But once more we were enchanted by the big selection and had too much :-)

The cake castle is situated in beautiful surroundings just by the lake Mälaren and I highly recommend going there. Directions can be found on their homepage.

    Cathy: lol :-)

    Donal: I think you mean the Budapest roll? It’s a kind of meringue roly poly that contains hazelnuts (and sometimes a almonds) and is filled with whipped cream and mandarin oranges. Very yummy :-) Even if you don’t mean exactly that one you just gave me an idea :-)
