My favourite cake is carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, followed by moist, dense chocolate cake with soft chocolate icing.

Sweden is not much for cake. You mostly find muffins, pastries, tarts, and crumbles, but hardly ever slices of good old cake with icing.

You do, however, find sandwich cake, made with bread and various savoury fillings.

Swedish Sandwich Cake is normally made up of several layers of whole wheat or light rye bread with creamy fillings in between. The fillings and toppings vary, but egg and mayonnaise are often the base; additional fillings may include one or more of the following: liver pâté, olives, shrimp, ham, cold cuts, caviar, tomato, cucumber, grapes, lemon slices, cheese, and smoked salmon.
