Morgan baking a "krokankaka"

Simon has got me in trouble, because I can't translate the word "krokan" or "krokankaka". I even thought about asking the Professor, but on second thought...no. So if there is any of you readers of 591 out there who knows the word, please leave a comment. - Mr Urbano

I'm thinking it could be translated as 'brittle'...anyway something to do with butter and almonds. Great picture!

using wiki and google translator leaves me with this strange explanation;

Krokan is a pastry, made of almond paste and egg white as piquancy out in decorative patterns and baked, which subsequently merged with the melted, caramelized sugar and assembled into a tower, usually of several storeys, then decorated with icing and marzipan roses. Usual at weddings in the past. The same ingredients used to make the Danish festbakverken kransekage.
