In a bowl add butter, salt, pepper, mustard paste and lemon juice and beat with mixer till fluffy. Set aside.Remove all crust from bread slices.Place a clean damp kitchen towel or napkin on a chopping board and butter 1 side of each slice of bread.Leave 1 slice on board, place others on a plate and cover with another damp cloth.

With the buttered side up, spread the green chutney over the butter. Be generous. Then add next slice buttered side down (on chutney). Then, on the top if that slice spread some mayonnaise.

Add sliced eggs (you can mash them if you prefer) sprinkle a little salt and pepper, then add next slice - buttered side down (on egg).

On top of this slice spread mayonnaise, then spread tomato ketchup.

Add sliced tomatoes, a little salt and pepper, and then next slice of bread, buttered side down (on tomato).

Spread mayonnaise on top of this slice and add cucumber slices then next slice of bread butter side down (on cucumber). Spread mayonnaise on top of this slice and add the roasted chicken - remember be generous - then next slice of bread butter side down (on chicken).

Do not put mayonnaise on the top of this slice.
Wrap the sandwich in the damp cloth and put in the freezer for 1 hour.

Place curd chess in a bowl. Beat well. Add salt and pepper and cream cheese. Beat again.
Add cream And beat again, making sure all ingredients are mixed well - but don't beat too much.
Remove sandwich from the freezer and spread topping over top and sides.
With left over topping, put it in a piping back and pipe around edge.
Decorate with olive slices, cherry halves. Place back in freezer - it can stay here until ready to use - remove from freezer 1 hour prior to using.
When ready to serve, add cabbage around cake.
*Here is the recipe of some basic items which will be used in the filling of the sandwich cake.

*roasted chicken

2 chicken breasts
Marinated in:
1/2 tsp  salt
1/2 tsp  pepper
1/2 tsp  mustard powder
1 Tbsp  ketchup
1 Tbsp  Worcestershire sauce.

Marinate chicken for at least 20 minutes. Heat 2 Tbsp of oil in a pan, cook for about 15 minutes - or until cooked - turning at least once. Cool, the shred in medium side pieces. Set aside.

**green chutney
1 green mango - peeled and seed removed - cut into pieces
1 bunch (1 cup) green corriander
25 (1/2 cup) mint leaves
6 green chillies
2 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp lemon juice

Blend all ingredients together to make a smooth paste. Set aside.

NOTE  To make curd cheese, take 2 cups yogurt and put in a mulmul cloth and hang with bowl underneath overnight. (try hanging cloth from shelf in fridge with bowl below to catch water) this will make 1 cup curd cheese.
