“Curly Top” Cake. Kräsupea kook

krasupea1(10)Father’s Day in Estonia is always celebrated and observed on Second Sunday of November each year. So, Happy Fathers Day!!!
And lets bake one cake for all fathers 🙂

This is “retro” cake. A sour cream layer cake with a topping made from chunks of white cake mixed with sour cream that looks like a curly hairdo (kräsupea). This cake from times, when in stores were nothing.
My cake look very decent 🙂 ( to get better photo 🙂 ). I did not made last layer from cake cubes but as usual layer.

For lazy people tip: you can use just cookies and do not waste time for baking layers.
For better result leave cake to set overnight.

  1. Amazing looking cake! I absolutely love smetana and I would love to taste a cake that has so much of it in it! And how interesting to chop the biscuit and mix it with the sour cream, I don’t think I have seen such a recipe before.


      1. I’ve made the cake a couple of weeks ago for my brother-in-law’s birthday, we all loved it, but the kids especially. 🙂 Thank you for the recipe!
