Today’s Sweet

Semlor by Call Me Cupcake
Photos by: Call me cupcake

Back in Sweden it’s Fettisdagen (or “Fat Tuesday” in English) today. This is a day when you indulge in these yummy treats as seen above, called Semlor. I don’t really know how to describe them except for  “a bun with whipped cream” but that doesn’t do them justice at all. Unfortunately I won’t have the pleasure to nibble on one of these today but if you want to try them I think (!) you could head to the Institut Suédois in Le Marais or make them yourself with this recipe from one of my absolute favourite baking blogs out there, Call Me Cupcake.

    Tack fina du! <3
    Hoppas du får en riktigt fin fettisdag ändå.
    Det är en av mina drömmar att få åka till Paris ett tag och baka och blogga därifrån. Om det händer någon gång för du komma förbi och fika :-)

      Åh, det var så lite så :) Vad gulligt av dig att titta förbi här. Haha, det gär jag så gärna så, det är bara att hojta till så är jag där inom 5 röda!

    Is Fettisdagen similar to Pancake Day in the UK? I am indulging myself in pancakes later, but I would rather be having these treats! xx

    • Paris in Four Months

      Hm.. I don’t know. We have pancake day in Sweden as well so this is something different I would say :) xx

    Why did you mention this baking blog? I wanna make everything right now and eat it all. 😀
    Such a great blog.
    I am sure that I will make something of it.

    And you might not have the swedish sweets but therefore all the french ones. :-) not too bad I think. 😉

    Have a nice evening.

      Haha I know, it’s amazing. And you want to make and eat it all! No, you’re absolutely right! You too :)

    • Paris in Four Months

      Jaha! Attans. Det får bli nästa gång helt enkelt 😉
