Soooo. . .  you ask, “What is kugelhopt cake and how can it be as big as a tree?”  “Easy!” replies Mother Nature, “Just add freezing temperatures, clouds, crystalline water ice, and. . .!Voila!  KUGELHOPT CAKE!! . . . right down to the dusting of powdered sugar. . . errr. . .SNOW!”

If you are unsure as to exactly what kugelhopt cake is. . . kugelhopt is a term used in southern Germany, Alsatia, Switzerland, Austria and is a cake made of risen yeast with raisins and almonds or candied fruits and nuts with Kirschwasser cherry brandy, baked in a pan similar to a bundt.  Some regions add fillings.  Usually it is eaten with coffee at coffee breaks.

The names for this cake in other parts of Germany and Europe are:  bundkuchen, napfkuchen, kuglof, kouglof, guguluf, babovka, wacker, wacka, kugluh, sarkelj. . . .  do you feel like your tongue is going places in your mouth it has never been before?!?!!?!!!
