Medaljer is a classic cream cake you will find in most baker's shop. The cake is a shortbread pastry with whipped cream, jam and custard. However simple the ingredients, it is a very tasty. In my young days I worked in a Baker's shop, and I have been decorating a lot of these medaljer to help the Pastry Chef. For the longest time, I wanted to become a pastry chef, but ended up as an engineer. Life takes it twists and turns.
