Smörgåstårta , The Swedish Sandwich Cake








BM # 68
Day : 3
Theme : One Category - Bread Sandwiches
Sub Theme - Sandwich Cakes

My third days post for Cooking Carnival is a special post. This post got glued to my mind, it is a Swedish Cake which Rajani had posted sometime back, I knew I had to make it as I simply loved it .You could check her post for step by step pictures.

The cake is called Smorgastarta and is normally served on most occasions in Sweden. Normally the fillings include cold cut meats along with veggies, but of course this is a vegetarian version and I followed Rajani's version, except for a little tweet.

I choose the sub theme of cakes this week as I had to post a cake for Dad's birthday. His birthday is tomorrow , but since we are off from posting on Sunday's I decided to post a day in advance.



Happy Birthday Dad ! God Bless you !
Here are the cakes that I have been posting on Dad's Birthday since a couple of years 
2013 Coffee Orange Cake
2014 Danish Apple Cake
2015 Cassata Cake with Chocolate Ice cream

For a long time I always got a tear in my eye when I thought of him, but not anymore. I fondly think of him and smile. He was a wonderful person and has taught and given us values of life .So with a smile lets get on to this Swedish Cake which happens to be served on special occasions.
