Although bite-sized sandwiches are all the rage during high tea, the layered sandwich cake will have guests puzzled and salivating in curiosity. The covert treat may look like a cake, but don't expect to get a sugar rush from this tasty bite.

The whimsical creation is actually a popular traditional Scandinavian dish called "Smörgåstårta," which is Swedish for -- you guessed it -- sandwich cake. The dish is created using slices of bread to resemble the layers of a traditional cake. Toppings like veggies, egg, cold cuts and other popular fillings are piled-high in between the layers. Mayonnaise is typically used as the icing to keep this triple-decker layered sandwich cake sturdy and stable.

The ModCloth blog variation is a cucumber and avocado sandwich with an outer ring of asparagus, a fun twist on this classic combo. Stats for Disguised Stacked Lunches Trending: Older & Warm
