Mini Sandwich Cakes (a.k.a. - Smörgåstårta) featured on Tablespoon.com


Have you ever had a Smörgåstårta, a sandwich that is decorated to look like a cake? I hadn't until General Mills asked me to create some of them for Tablespoon.com. A quick internet search was all it took to understand just how popular these sandwich cakes are throughout the world. 

Many of the Smörgåstårta recipes call for several different complicated fillings to be layered in between bread, then each sandwich is frosted with a cream cheese mixture. I kept my little cakes simple using store bought chicken or ham salad and Pillsbury Grands Biscuits. I then frosted them with a combination of cream cheese and sour cream then decorated them with vegetables, eggs, nuts and herbs. 

These would make a lovely meal for a wedding shower, ladies luncheon, or birthday party. To see how to create your own mini sandwich cakes, go to Tablespoon.com's Rock UR Party.

  2. As usual, I'm blown away with the Smorgastarta. Your amazing. Beth, you have to have the biggest pantry or your a storage genius. How do you do it. I have boxes full in my husbands MAN CAVE and still have it all over the place. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you again, Trish Butler

    1. I not only have a very large kitchen with lots of cupboards for storage, I also have a separate candy making kitchen with lots more storage. I am pretty organized and have shelves, drawers and bins that I use.

  3. THis is so fun. My friend told me about sandwich cakes few years back, she
    made one for a party, but I haven't had a chance to make it yet. Your version
    is so super cute and I'm sure really tasty too. Thanks for sharing this Beth.
