How to make semlor

Semlor are a sort of Swedish cream puff that are traditionally eaten on "Fettisdag" (mardis gras). Many Swedish friends have explained the disappointing trend in which this special treat is now available for about three months instead of on the one day. "Every year semlor come even earlier!" In any case, my friend Mea's family makes their own semlor each year (on the correct day) and they were nice enough to invite me along. The buns are flavored with cardomom, and then in the true Swedish tradition, stuffed to the gills with whipped cream and marzipan. Yum!
