the best fat tuesday buns ... ever

A Tiny Fat Tuesday Bun

On Friday some friends came over to make buns. These are no ordinary buns. They are called Semlor in Swedish (semla singular), and are informally translated to Fat Tuesday Buns. The idea being that before the strictness of Lent (perchance even fasting), you're allowed to be a bit gluttonous.

The buns are made from a buttery dough seasoned with ground cardamom. The filling is ground almonds with cream, and topped, in this case, softly whipped whipped cream, and the bun top.

I've had fat tuesday buns before, but homemade ones are so many times better!
