Katja and Per woke up early in the morning and woke Silja up by singing in Danish and running into her room waving Danish flags! I love how the country's pride is included in celebrating Danish birthdays.
We all gathered around the table together for a special breakfast. We had delicious yogurt parfaits with yogurt, raspberries, blueberries, honey and granola, and then we had bread, cheese, and Danish pastries. The table was decorated with Danish flags, and we had a great time celebrating Silja before we went off to school and work!
These cinnamon rolls were amazing. We started by making the dough and letting it rise. It was interesting to use a scale to measure the ingredients in grams! After the dough rises, you roll it out in a rectangle and spread the cinnamon/butter mixture on top. You then roll the dough, cut the long roll into pieces, and then press them into the pan for them to sit and rise again. Lastly, you put them in the over and top them with icing. They were absolutely delicious.
