Frankfurt Wreath Cake Recipe

If you are craving a dessert that is easy to be put together and has a very lovely presentation, you are in the right place. This Frankfurt Wreath Cake recipe is an absolute favorite in my home, and I assure it will be in yours once you make this delicious and representative cake.


The nicest thing about the recipe is that you can assemble it in under an hour, including time for baking. Do you know why? This is because you are going to „cheat“ on the filling of the cake. I am using store-bought vanilla pudding, and I have whipped it up with butter and rum for a little bit of kick. And in under 7 minutes, you have one delicious filling for a cake that everyone will go wild for.


The nice presentations come from the Krokant, which is crushed nuts, and the whole cake is decorated with these mini nut bites, which not only adds a pretty look to the cake but also a nice crunch to it as well. This wreath cake is an absolute must-try for those who like to entertain a lot. Enjoy it to the fullest.
