Wondering if anyone has ever made a sandwich cake before- essentially different layers of tea-like sandwiches all in one loaf of bread (sliced horizontally) and then iced with cream cheese? Sounds a bit strange to me but a good friend loves them, and would like to make one... need ideas for layers that would go together!
I have heard of this before, in fact, I first saw this in my
mother's old cookbook. I
believe it was a 50's better homes and garden. As I recall, a whole loaf of bread was sliced thinly then filled and frosted with a flavored cream cheese. They are then sliced into portions.
I've seen these in old magazines, the fillings were ham salad and egg salad and chicken salad. Could be nice, I think, if care is taken with each component. The bread would be important, bit I wouldn't know what kind would be best. (Someone here will know.)
I googled images of this and the pictures are less than appetizing.
tuna salad, hard boiled egg
I have. I tinted the cream cheese blue for a baby shower. You will need way more cheese than you think, so make sure you use interesting cheese.
First Post-LONGTIME lurker. I just bookmarked a couple of sites about sandwich cakes. I found the best results by searching for swedish smörgåstårta.
Here are two of my favorite sites.
I have never made one but thought they looked fun especially for an Easter Brunch or a baby shower.
