Decorate your cakes like Norm Abram

Ask a manly man about woodworking and they’ll immediately think of Norm Abram’s
masterfully converting a log into a shaker inspired table. Norm’s a master builder with a garage filled to the rafters with the best tools.

Table saws, reciprocating saws, nail guns, and planers are great fun. But nothing is as cool as a router. Routers magically transform square blocks into groovy and swoopy masterpieces.

Bake a traditional Norwegian Kransekake cake

The kransekake cake is a traditional Norwegian cake served for special occasions, such as weddings and Christmas. These cake forms allow you to create the individual rings that are stacked to generate the cake.

Kransekake Forms for Norwegian Wedding Cake

Here’s a recipe for Kransekake by Norway Hei

Ingredients:

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 300°F. (150°C.)

Whip egg whites some, but not until foamy. Gradually add powdered sugar and egg whites to ground almonds. Work dough until pliable. Wrap dough in plastic and keep in fridge overnight. It will be easier to work with chilled dough.

Sprinkle forms lightly with cream of wheat or farina. Form dough into rolls the size of your finger and place into ring-shaped forms.

This recipe will make 18 rings, which is standard.

Bake for 20 minutes in middle of oven. Let rest a few minutes before taking cakes out of forms.
