Pour the warm milk into a mixing bowl and mash in the fresh cake yeast. Mix in 6 1/2tablespoons of soft butter, eggs, cardamom, 2 tablespoons sugar, salt, and 3 1/2 cups of theflour. Use a wooden spoon to mix the dough. If it's very sticky, mix in the remaining 1/2 cup offlour. Cover the bowl and let the dough rise for 30 minutes.
Cream together the 2/3 cup butter and 1/2 cup sugar. Stir in the cinnamon.
Move (from one place to another) the dough to a floured surface and knead it until it's firm,about 3 minutes. Divide the dough in half; roll each half into a rectangle no more than 1/2 inchthick. Spread each rectangle with half the filling.
Stack one layer of dough and filling on top of the other rectangle of dough, filling-side up. Roll thedough up, starting with the edge closest to you, to form a long log. Cut the log into 1 inch-thickslices.
Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with paper , orgrease a baking dish or two cake pans.
Place the rolls on the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 3 inches apart. If you like pull-apart rolls, arrange them in a greased baking dish or cake pans, spacing the rolls about 1 inchapart. Place the uneven end pieces on the baking sheet cut-side up for the best presentation. Letthe rolls rest 20 minutes before baking.
