Notes about this recipe

  • mjes on May 06, 2018

    Yes, I realize that a smörgåstårta is often included in awful foods of the 50's. Yes, I wish Nilsson included additional examples rather than just a seafood version. But I still find a sandwich cake to be an impressive way to feed a crowd ... the Scandinavian equivalent to a 6-foot sub. I've only made the recipe as written once as family events include several people who dislike seafood. But a variation with deviled ham and egg salad is usually a success. And, no, my decorating skills are minimal so I depend on the "artful" placement of cucumber and radish slices, herbs and flowers for the decoration.
