Jessie Oleson (aka Cakespy) drops by every week to share a delicious dessert recipe. —The Mgmt.
Time for High Tea? More like high time to give tea sandwiches a totally sweet makeover, with these slim and dainty but devilishly decadent frosting-filled Sprinkle Cakewiches.
I got this idea from the newly-published Scanwiches by Jon Chonko, wherein all manner of sandwiches are chronicled in a sort of art-meets-sandwich anthropology sort of way. Under the Tea Sandwich listing, there is a fascinating sprinkle-and-frosting-filled variation; naturally, I knew I had to try out my own version. I decided to take it one step further into dessert territory by swapping out the crustless white bread with thin slices of poundcake--and, because why not, I used chocolate poundcake paired with pink frosting and pastel sprinkles. The whimsical nature of the sandwiches would be charming for a child's tea party, but the tastiness is appropriate for all ages.
