Sandwich Cake: Awesome or Disgusting?

created at: 04/03/2012

Cake purists out there may not approve, but I think this savory, Scandinavian-style sandwich cake called a smörgåstårta looks incredible. Layers of bread separate creamy fillings, and a frosting made of sour cream and cream cheese tops it off.
