Smoked salmon sandwich cake is the perfect make-ahead savory appetizer for any party or family gathering. It’s easy to make and fun to put together! Choose any garnish you like and turn it into a stunning centerpiece!
First, get a flat tray that can fit in your fridge. This is where you will assemble the sandwich cake.
Next, make the smoked salmon filling: In a bowl, combine chopped salmon, cream cheese, mayonnaise, finely chopped fresh dill, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mix everything well. Taste it. Add more seasoning, if needed. Set aside.
Now, prepare the egg filling: In another bowl, combine chopped hard-boiled eggs, mayonnaise, fresh dill, salt and pepper. Mix everything well with a fork and give it a taste. Add more seasoning, if needed.
Place 2 slices of bread onto the tray – next to each other. Spread over half of the salmon filling. When done, cover with two more slices of bread and spread half of the egg filling over. Repeat until you have used all the bread slices and both fillings.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Mix the remaining cream cheese and mayonnaise and spread the whole cake (sides included) with the mixture (this should be a very thin layer – just to cover the cake). Prepare garnishes of your choice and decorate the cake to your liking (see note 2).
I used crustless whole wheat bread but you can use white bread as well. Also, you can remove the crust yourself, if needed.
Garnish the cake to your liking – you can use other garnish items like radish, eggs, caviar, chives, ….
The overall prep time does not include the overnight-chilling.
