Danish Kringles, can you get these in LA

I believe at the very least you can get these in the city of Solvang, up the coast from Santa Barbara.

but do any bakeries in LA carry these and do a decent job at that?

    Andersen's in Downtown Santa Barbara is closer, but as Das Ubergeek said, Poul's is closer still, unless you live in Thousand Oaks or something. I hardly ever go to Solvang anymore, since I can make my own æbleskiver, and Andersen's (non-pastry) food is better than anything I've ever had in Solvang. But now I'm interested in trying Paula's. Maybe the next Danish Days...

      Pouls Bakery in Orange, but call first.

        I wonder if the bakery section in the grocery store at Alpine Village sells them - they have limpa. I am just finishing the one I picked up in Solvang over the weekend now. SO GOOD!! ;-) Hope you find them!

            This is going to sound whack-a-doodle but right before Christmas Trader Joe's started carrying almond kringle as one of the fresh "cake" items under the name almond ring cake. I noticed them as that was my next chore in holiday baking and I also remember noticing that they were in the proper knot shape (nothing against the Racine Kringle lovers, but the oval is just not the right shape). And I hazard to say that TJ's almond tastes a darned bit better than the Racine ones we'd get in Minneapolis.
