Making shrimp layer: Pour in shrimp, butter, and salt in the food processor bowl. Process until you obtain a uniform paste. Set aside.
Making egg layer: Mix eggs and mayo until combined. Set aside.
Making the avocado layer: Mash the avocado, leaving small chunks. Season with lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
Prepping bread: Cut the bread crust, making sure each slice forms a perfect square, all the same size. Cut two of the slices into halves (you'll see why in the next step).
Assembling: Place two whole bread slices side to side. Cover with half the shrimp paste. Top with one whole slice of bread in the center, and two half slices on each side. This way the cuts won't fall one on top of the other, and the sandwich won't split in the middle.Top with the avocado layer, spreading uniformly. Follow with two whole slices of bread, cover them with the egg mixture spread uniformly. Cover with a whole slice in the center, and two half slices on each side of it. Spread the remaining shrimp paste and top with the remaining bread.
Chilling: Wrap the sandwich cake with plastic film, making sure that the sides are even. Chill for two hours.
Making cream cheese icing: Mix cream cheese and butter and whip until it is fluffy and well combined (3-5 min at medium speed with paddle attachment).
Decorating: Ice the sandwich cake with the whipped cream cheese using a spatula. Decorate. Chill for half an hour (uncovered).
Serving: Serve cut into slices (use a serrated bread knive to cut.
You can decorate your sandwich cake as simple or as fancy as you want. Other decoration choices might be cucumber, leftover shrimp, lettuce, lime or lemon wedges, carrot, radish slices, olives, etc. Have fun doing it.
