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.
What a lovely sandwich, Marlene. I suppose you’ll eat this with knife and fork 😉
Looking at this picture I wonder how many people can get a slice of this sandwich cake ? 🙂
Yes, we did use knife and fork and cutting a piece is quite a piece of work because of that salad wrapping around it, hehee. Can you believe that this is good for 8 people only? The Swedes love this cake so they’d probably want a big piece. Lol!
That looks awesome and delicious!
It is! 🙂

Wow, that looks really delicious. I’ve always wanted to try out some Scandinavian cuisine, especially a classic smorgasbord spread.
