Welfenspeise. A dessert fit for royalty.

The welfenspeise dessert was first made by a Hanoverian chef for the bicentenary of the House of Guelph's ascension to the throne. Its yellow and white represent the Guelph's family colours. This two-layered dessert of vanilla custard and wine syllabub is said to have been Elector Ernst August's favourite sweet. Today welfenspeise can be found on the menu in many restaurants and is a firm favourite at family celebrations in and around Hannover.
