Swedish Treats For Snowy Days

We're having quite a bit of snow these days in Bucharest, nobody's going anywhere, and I have to say it is pretty nice - with us having had no snow around Christmas. 

And with all this snow coming in, for some reason Sweden popped right back on my radar again. What better way to celebrate schools being closed than with tasty Swedish treats?

This wonderful specialty is called Semla, and it consists of homemade buns (oven baked), filled with almond paste and cream, sprinkled with powdered sugar. It's such a sweet dessert, and even its miniature version is quite mouth watering, if I do say so myself.

I don't know whether we are expecting even more snow, and even if we are I am not worried, I have all the polymer clay I need to carry on with my "obsession" for miniatures, and as long as the internet is working, I'll be sure to share my next tiny projects with you.
