Licitarsko srce

These small cakes are traditionally made from honey dough or gingerbread, although try eating one of those that you find displayed in shop windows all over Zagreb and indigestion is the likely result rather than the happy love life that is actually the point. Shaped as a bright-red heart and decorated with white framing lines, flowers and mirrors, licitarsko srce have long been offered as love tokens to the object of affection. These days they are adorned with imaginative slogans such as ‘Zagreb’ and lie in wait to reveal to you the love the locals have for the contents of your wallet.
