The top-split bun is a toasted pound cake, and the lobster salad is strawberry ambrosia. These cakes are small, so make a few and serve them in paper baskets with gummy lemon slices. 

Get the Recipe: Lobster Roll Cake

Combine 1 cup each chopped strawberries and mini marshmallows, 1/3 cup coconut and 1/2 cup each plain Greek yogurt and whipped cream in a large bowl with a rubber spatula.

Using kitchen shears, cut 2 pieces green licorice on the diagonal into small pieces. Fold into the strawberry mixture; cover and refrigerate.

Preheat the broiler. Using a serrated knife, shave the edge off both long sides of the pound cake.

Make 2 lengthwise cuts, about an inch deep, in the top of the cake, 1 inch in from each edge.

Carefully pry out the middle strip. Place the rest of the cake on a baking sheet and broil, turning, until toasted on all sides.

Fill the opening in the cake with the strawberry mixture, mounding it on top; serve with gummy lemon slices.
