Happy St.Stephens Day Hungary

20th August is St Stephens Day, a day of celebrations a national holiday for the foundation of the Hungarian state and the evening ends with a wonderful 30 minute firework display across the river Danube. So sitting here near the airport it’s a little way away but the illumination will light the night sky across the city.


So Happy Birthday Hungary!


Above is the national cake of Hungary for 2016, each year there is a different cake and above is 2016 and below a description.

Őrség Zöld Aranya/Green Gold of Őrség – by Gellért Szó, G&D Cake Shop, Salgótarján. (Winning cake maker)

The cake when sliced is red, white and green the colour of the Nations flag. 

The name refers to the cold-pressed pumpkin seed oil made in the Őrség in West Hungary, white chocolate ganache and raspberry are the other two main ingredients in this unique, colourful torte.

The green sponge is made with almond flour and pumpkin seed oil.

White chocolate ganache, raspberry jelly, a crunchy pumpkin seed praline and a moss-green mirror glaze result in a unique, refreshing combination of various textures and flavours.
