The Quiz: Sweden’s Gustavus Adolphus pastry features what decoration?
An iced violin
A fondant ring
A chocolate silhouette
Explanation : In Sweden, November 6 is Gustavus Adolphus Day — an homage to King Gustavus Adolphus the Great, who died in battle in 1632. His namesake treat, created in 1909 by a local patissiere, is a mille feuille-style delight, often filled with jelly, but always topped with a chocolate (or marzipan) silhouette of Gustavus Adolphus’ mustached profile.
Correct Answer: A chocolate silhouette
