I don’t know how to call this kind of a cake in English but it’s called Smörgåstårta (smörgås = sandwich, tårta=cake). It’s a typical Swedish cake that’s basically made with sliced bread in layers and garnished with shrimps, eggs, salmon, tomato, cucumber. The ingredients, however, have been enhanced these days. As you can see in my picture, it’s decorated with salad, cheese and grapes. Take your piece and have a feast!
It was a long time ago when I first ate smörgåstårta and I didn’t like it. Perhaps the ingredients didn’t suit my taste then. Sometimes it depends on how creamy it is. For me, the creamier the better. I had my chance to try this smörgåstårta (sandwich cake) at a birthday party a few days ago and gladly, I liked it. Hubby was surprised I ate a portion of it. But to him, the cake wasn’t that tasteful. He has eaten many different smörgåstårtor so he can tell which of them tastes the best. I can’t, though I would love to try a smörgåstårta with different ingredients.
