Frankfurter Kranz cake

The Frankfurter Kranz. A cake fit for a king.

The Frankfurter Kranz cake is a ring-shaped cake made from several layers of sponge and covered in buttercream. It symbolises Frankfurt's former status as a 'coronation city'. Its shape, golden brittle coating and ruby-red glacé cherries all combine to suggest a kaiser's crown. First mentioned in 1735, even today it's a treat that is frequently enjoyed with afternoon coffee.
