Semlor!

semla, we finally found a bakery who makes them!

Around the world today people are marking Shrove Tuesday in various ways – in Sweden, the day (“fettisdagen” – Fat Tuesday) is marked by eating a traditional pastry, called semla or fastlagsbulle, a sweet bun stuffed with almond paste and whipped cream.

It certainly looks like a pretty neat tradition to me. Feast your eyes on more delicious semla photos.
