It's been a long time coming!
What's that you ask?
Realizing I am what I have spent many years collecting!
The Happiest Day of the Year
Every little child should have the joy of a real birthday cake of their own, and every grown-up child should have the opportunity to renew their youth at least once a year with a special celebration on their own personal anniversary. A Birthday cake will delight any child...big or little...and can be varied indefinitely to suit the month of their birth. Cake is a wholesome and nourishing as a food, even for children, as they are effective from a decorative standpoint.
For January's Child...A Snowball Cake
Make twice the recipe of White Cake and bake in two aluminum bowls of quart capacity (these are usually obtainable at five-and-ten-cent stores). Cut off the tops of the cakes, if they have rounded up at all in the center, so that they will fit together, making a ball. Use a little Uncooked Icing to hold them together and frost all over with the same icing. Roll in cocoanut. Place on cake board and arrange tall candles around the cake. Small snowball cakes, frosted and rolled in cocoanut, make attractive candle holders. (Vintage Recipes: Cake Baking Made Easy w/Airy Fairy 1927)
