[Three Kranse-Kage Cakes]

Description: Photograph of three Kransekage tiered cakes on top of a table covered by a white lace cloth with floral motifs. Two equal-sized cakes flank a much larger cake. They have all been drizzled with white frosting; topped with Danish, Texan, and American flags; and decorated with curled red and white ribbon that cascade downwards. The middle cake has also been pinned with an index card-sized piece of paper that reads "100". In the background, a series of photographs can be seen hanging on a grid-like white wall. Hand-written text on the back of the photograph cannot be read with certainty, but it seems to state, "Danevang Centennial 1894-1994. Danish Wreath Cake. We closed the weekend by sharing the cakes outside with a 'Farewell Blessing'".
