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.



  1. Your photos are beautiful and yes, those buns look delicious! We don't get snow where we live in Australia, only in the mountains, never in the cities, so enjoy!

  2. So I guess I should consider snow a real treat then, right? :) I'll keep that in mind for the next one. I am glad you like the photos, it's really hard to take good ones especially when there is little natural light (the sun is kind of shy this time of year in Bucharest...).

  3. Semlorna looks great, I get hungry just looking at them, but in my family we don't eat them before "fettisdag" so I have to wait for them =)

  4. So I guess you'll have to wait until the 4th of March :)
