Sandwich layer cake (Smörgåstårta)

Smörgåstårta, is kind of special for the Nordic countries, or perhaps even for Sweden only. Although to my surprise my favorite online dictionary actually had a proper translation for it; Sandwich layer cake.

The translation describes it rather well, it is bread layered with fillings, normally 2-3 layers of filling and then decorated, kind of like a normal cake would be, but naturally with a bit different ingredients as decoration.

Common decorations, as well as ingredients in the fillings, are shrimps, egg, caviar, salmon, cheese and ham, but can be varied almost endlessly, the only limitation is your imagination. Of course one should keep to things that go well together.

In my cake there’ll be: A type of liver paté (leverpastej), smoked turkey and smoked ham, plus a few other things that will turn those ingredients into creamy fillings.

I’ll have a recipe and images up for you tomorrow 🙂
