    Posted: 03 Aug 2007 at 9:10pm
Hi, I am new here and am so happy I found this site. My husband is from St. Thomas and he loves the Vienna Cake. All I know is it has different layers of jams, I believe, and haven't been able to find the right recipe for years. No one wants to give up their families recipes. So, I am wondering if anyone has a recipe they could share with me. We live in Alaska so it's a little hard for his mom to ship the cake here to us. Tongue

Thanks ~ Kelly

Vienna Cake is a culinary confection originated by slaves in the Danish West Indies in the 1800s and has epicurean roots in Vienna , Austria . It has at least4 or  5 layers, separated by a rainbow assortment of fillings which may include green gage, strawberry, apricot, mint, carambola or guavaberry or for that matter any preserve . The Icing is boiled over a double boiler making it hard to the touch once cooled and placed on the cake. As a added delight, for decoration purposes a Vienna Cake may be decorated with scatterings of edible silver balls or sprinkled with coconut flakes.
