GRÄDDTÅRTANS DAG
WHIPPED CREAM CAKE DAY

By the end of the 1800’s it was possible to mechanically separate milk from cream. This meant that the cream could be whipped and used as decoration. Since Sweden is a country rich in berries of many different kinds, this was a natural topping on any sweet. A traditional cake would therefore consist of a light sponge cake with either custard, jam and/or mashed fresh berries. This would be decorated with whipped cream and the most beautiful berries on top. Most often strawberries or raspberries. This cake is still one of the favorites in Sweden and is the most common cake at birthday celebrations. The cake is usually referred to as a Swedish Cake outside of Sweden.

For Whipped cream cake day the Museum will host a pop-up café.
A slice of cake and beverage is $6.
