Its a Cake! Its a Sandwich!

It's full of meaty goodness.. It's a Smörgåstårta!

Another reason to visit Sweden soon..
I saw one of these sandwich cakes at a party a long time ago
and always wondered where they originated.
And finally I've found out.

Here's the deal-
You take a loaf of bread cut it the long way, and layer fillings like a cake.

These fillings can be:
Pate
Shrimp Salad
Egg Salad
Caviar
Cold Cuts
Salmon
Chicken Salad
Insert whatever else you like to put on a sandwich..

And then frost it with Mayonnaise!!

Make it look appetizing by decorating it with olives, cucumbers, cheese, gherkins, tomatoes, radish, or any pretty vegetable.

Like a cake it looks to good to eat!


I'll be trying my hand at one soon..
will be sure to post some photos.
