    Lorac's Note:

    A festive way to serve party sandwiches. For baby and bridal showers, I add a bit of food coloring to match the theme and garnish the serving platter with fresh flowers. If you are making 2 loaves you can use one white and one wheat loaf and alternate the slices. The loaf can be made ahead of time. Posted by request.

      Even though it's been years since I have made this, I feel the need to rate it! The trick is to thin the cream cheese, but not too much and do NOT frost the loaf too early on. It may get cracks in it cuz it dries out and I suppose some of the moisture goes into the bread. If you do get some cracking, it can easily be repaired before serving. You can also have the bakery dye the loaf(s) any color you like and have them slice it horizontally for you. I made 3 loaves, pink, green & yellow and alternated the colored layers of bread w/ the fillings. So FUN! Each loaf had all the colors and fillings.*chicken salad, egg salad, ham salad, shrimp salad. Thanks for posting Lorac.
