Specialty Cakes In Lake Geneva

Specialty Cakes are a big hit these days with the success of Food Networks "Ace of Cakes." Pictured here is a Classic Swedish Torte also known as a Princess Torte. It is three layers of yellow sponge cake, filled with raspberry preserves, custard and mini chocolate chips and then topped with a dome of whip cream and covered with marzipan. Finally the Princess Cake is dusted with powdered sugar with a single marzipan rose on the top.

SkagenHus in Williams Bay is proud to announce the availability of all types of specialty cakes for your next special event. With our Cooperative arrangement with Kirsten's Danish Bakery in Burr Ridge Illinois and with The Swiss Maid Bakery of Harvard and Woodstock Illinois (remember the Movie Ground Hog Day filmed on the Woodstock Square?), we can get just about anything made out of cake.

Regardless of the size of your event or special needs we can most likely get it done for you. The special slide show below is just a small sample of what's available here in the Lake Geneva area of Wisconsin. Prices range from $25 and up depending on your needs. Of course you can also go to Kirstens' (Tx 630-655-2066) or Swiss Maid (Tx 815-743-7282) directly if you like. Just tell Kirsten or Paul (Swiss Maid) that SkagenHus sent you.

FiskeFrikadeller Open Face Style At SkagenHus's Danish Tea Room

FiskeFrikadeller (Danish Fish meatballs) is one of our favorite items to pick up from the Fish Market in Denmark where they are made fresh every day. In Denmark they are pan fried and made with a mix of salmon and plaice. They are served warm with coarsely made remoulade and home baked rye bread.

I can happily admit that not all of them tend to make it home
before being inhaled dockside as we enjoy the mid-morning beauty of the boats and the ocean.

Here at SkagenHus in the Lake Geneva area of Wisconsin we serve these tasty little devils on dark pumpernickel bread as open face sandwiches. In our Danish Tea Room the FiskeFrikadeller are made with fresh Norwegian Salmon and Filet of Sole. They are pan fried in butter and EVOO to a medium golden brown, sliced in generous portions and placed on bib lettuce over buttered pumpernickel then topped with remoulade, lemon slices, a few sprigs of fresh dill and Syltede Asier. A portion of red cabbage and a helping of seedless grapes are added to transform the dish into a full and refreshing light meal.

Why not stop by the Danish Tea Room at SkagenHus on your next visit to Lake Geneva and try a delicious and genuinely authentic Scandinavian meal alternative. Many of our regulars top off their meal with hot Swedish Coffee and warm Danish Kringle. You'll wonder why you don't eat like this more often; especially when you consider the Danish Fiskfrekadeller Open Face Sandwich, Swedish Coffee and warm Kringle are priced at just $8.70 per person.
