Rolled Wavers Symbolize the Unknow in the New Year

Krumkake or Wafer Cones ©Judith van Praag 2012

Beside the national favorite "oliebol" you may be served iron baked wavers on New Year's Eve up north in the Netherlands. They stand for the known, old year. When visiting people the first days of the new year you're bound to be presented "rolletjes", wavers rolled around a dowel, and served plain, or stuffed with whipped cream.
The reason why I created the cones in the picture is practical, I didn't have a dowel. I could have sawed the bowl of a wooden spoon, but I'm rather attached to my old spoons, thank you very much, so I decided to use the cone shaped gadget that comes with the Krumkake wafer iron.
The nice thing about a cone is that it holds more whipped cream or fruit mousse (whipped cream spooned through a puree of for instance mango), and who would object to that?

May the 2013 be happy, healthy and successful, and filled with pleasant surprises!
