What is a traditional South Jutland Coffee Table?
The tradition says that a real South Jutland Coffee Table should have 21 different types of cakes, although you will also encounter the smaller, and slightly more realistic, version with 14 cakes.
There are naturally many differing options on how to put together the perfect coffee table, but you would often start with the soft cakes, which supposedly create a good base for the rest of the feast. This category includes cakes like kringle and pastries. Then you would go to the dry cakes, including the sponges and tarts. Lastly, you would have the hard cakes, which would be different types of cookies and biscuits.
