These socks are inspired by a Swedish cake called Princess Cake (Prinsesstårta) and the motif is a traditional rose pattern from the island Gotland which is renowned for all the pretty roses in the town Visby. The cake origins from a cookbook published in the late 1920’s called “Prinsessornas Kokbok” and the name of the cake was initially just ”Green cake” because the cake is covered in green marzipan, decorated with a pink marzipan rose. The cake was invented by, or at least the author was inspired by, the Swedish princess sisters (Margareta, Märta & Astrid) that were the author’s pupils by the time when the recipe was first published and therefore the name later changed into Prinsesstårta.
