Two The Worlds Best

Over 12500 views at Youtube makes this the most popular


I just love this cake. I was first introduced to this during a birthday party in my early teens. It was my friend’s birthday and I still remember his mom making a double stacked cake tall as any American cake.  You won’t believe me before you taste this, but it might just be as good as the description. I know I’m one step closer to heaven cutting a big piece of this bad boy of a cake. Seriously it is that good! Also known as “Kvæfjordkake” in Norway.

Most people just go to the store and buy premade vanilla cream, or a powder that you add water to. Using the premade one is very quick to add to any recipe. If you want the best taste, and already using the powdered, you might as well make it from scratch. It takes very few basic ingredients and it’s easy. This recipe following The World’s Best will be twice the size as normal.

  11. Next in the mixer Add egg whites and sugar (12.5 oz.)
  12. Mix on full speed until it’s very fluffy.
  13. Split this mixture as well and spread on top of the cake batter you worked with earlier.
  14. Crush walnuts and almonds and add to the top of the cake.
  15. Put it in the oven and cook for 30 minutes
  16. When it’s done let it cool down for 2-3 hours. In your fridge or freezer.

  18. Add a new baking paper on top of the cake, and flip it over.
  19. Pull off the paper stuck to cake bottom.
  20. Add a new baking paper and flip it again.
