My aunt is Danish and moved here when she was child. So when she married my uncle, they raised their kids with both American and Danish experiences. So part of the Danish side of this is having this INCREDIBLE Danish layer cake for their birthdays. So this really has become a tradition in my family and I finally found a recipe that I LOVE. I actually make the cake with 3 layers though the recipe says you can make up to 6 or 7. We always put the birthday person's favorite candy on top so you can choose whatever you'd like. I always pick either Kit Kats or Gummy Worms since those are my favorite. I also tend to put fresh berries and chocolate chips on top. It's absolutely delicious! Enjoy!! I got it from this site: http://www.plu.edu/--scancntr/nordic-culture/danish-layer.html
