Cake and tuna. Two words that seem at odds with each other. Right? But wait until you see my sassy tuna sandwich cake. You might change your mind. Watch this video first and then read the rest of the blog post.
When I think of all the energy I wasted on hoping that other people would like me, I just laugh at myself. What a silly thing to invest in. Why be sweet when you can be sassy? Tuna salad sandwich is the sassiest thing I could think of. It is fishy smelly. It is the sourness of lemon juice. The bite of green onions. A sandwich that leaves a mark on your tongue long after you have finished eating. Sweetness of a different kind. Sweet without sugar. Something authentic is brewing between those slices of bread. A tangy bolt of energy that connects you with the vibrancy of life. Protected between slices of bread. Hidden. Every bite a new surprise. To increase the cake effect, I made a triple layer sandwich. It gave the creation extra height. When my husband came from work, he thought that it was a slice of cake with chocolate sauce, this made me sooooooooooooooooo happy. My visual deception is a success.
