Things You'll Need

  • Round loaf of unsliced bread
  • Wooden toothpicks
  • Prepared ham salad, 16 ounces
  • Pimento cheese spread, 16 ounces
  • Egg salad, 16 ounces
  • 8 ounce package of cream cheese, (2)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Fresh parsley
  • Assorted vegetables for garnish

Step 1: Cut the Bread Layers

Place the bread round on a flat surface and insert toothpicks about 1/2 inch up the side of the bread all the way around the side. Using a large bread knife and the toothpicks as guides, slice all the way through the loaf.

Repeat this process two times, so the bread is cut into four layers.

Spread the whipped cream cheese on the edges and top as you would icing on a cake. Turn the plate as you need to and cover the entire surface.

Step 5: Decorate the "Cake"

Cut small sprigs of parsley and place around the base.

We split green onions to use as greenery, wrapped salami around a carrot to make a calla lily, and cut radishes into roses. However, you can decorate as much or as little as your imagination and the variety of vegetables on hand allows.
