Domestic Daddy's 'Spectacular Holiday Cake' is a towering take on a traditional Norwegian Christmas dessert. The layers upon layers of puff pastry brought about a culinary work of art, one that would probably be better off photographed than eaten.

The San Francisco and New York based chef and decor expert that is Domestic Daddy followed the style of Norwegian Kransekakes, or simply, 'ring cakes.' The almond-flavored dough is described as more of a chewy cookie, landing this festive centerpiece somewhere between an elaborate biscuit and a baked cruller.

The Spectacular Holiday Cake requires breadcrumbs, flour, egg whites, sugar and lemon juice. While these ingredients may be basic, the detailing comes to the fore via Kransekake pans. The rounded shape gives off the exquisite tiered effect.
