A Prinsesstårta is a traditional Swedish cake consisting of alternating layers of airy cake, whipped cream and thick pastry cream all topped with a thick layer of marzipan. The marzipan overlay is normally green, sprinkled with powdered sugar, and often decorated with a red marzipan rose. The original recipe first appeared in the 1930s “Prinsessornas Kokbok” cookbook, which was published by the teacher of Prince Carl, Duke of Västergötland’s daughters. The cake was originally called “Grön tårta”, but was given the name “prinsesstårta” or “princess cake” because the princesses were said to have been especially fond of the cake.
