Danish Kids Birthday Cake.

A kids birthday cake is on the top of the list when preparing a kids birthday party.

In Denmark the most popular kids birthday cake is the "Cake Man" or "Cake Woman" in Danish called "Kagemand" and "Kagekone" and is either made out of Danish Pastry or what they call "Brunsviger" in Denmark

(Brunsviger is a sweet bun dough with a mixture of brown sugar and margarine on top.)

You can order a Cake man from any Danish bakery in Denmark and if living abroad and there is a Danish bakery in your area they should be able to help you.

Make your own Cake Man.

To feed about 20-24 kids you will need half a mix of the recipe of Danish Pastry and a big oven, about 90 cm vide, if you only have a 60 cm vide oven or you only need to feed 10 kids use about ¼ of this recipe or make two cake men.

Mix and fold the Danish pastry as per recipe and you will end up with a piece of dough at about 750 gr.
