Origami Bursdagskaka


We’re proud to present one of the ultra rare and much talked about Origami Bursdagskaka concerts as the opening act of day 2 during KKXV.

The birthday cake (bursdagskaka) has been an integral part of the birthday celebrations in predominantly Protestant countries since the middle of the 19th century, which extended to Western culture. Certain rituals and traditions, such as singing of birthday songs, associated with birthday cakes (bursdagskaka) are common to many Western cultures. The Western tradition of adding lit candles to the top of a birthday cake (bursdagskaka) originates in 18th-century Germany. However, the intertwining of cakes and birthday celebrations stretch back to the Ancient Romans. The development of the birthday cake (bursdagskaka) has followed the development of culinary and confectionery advancement. While throughout most of Western history, these elaborate cakes in general were the privilege of the wealthy, birthday cakes (bursdagskaka) are nowadays common to most Western birthday celebrations. Around the world many variations on the birthday cake (bursdagskaka), or rather the birthday pastry or sweets, exist, but it’s just not the same.
