10 Cakes Husbands Like Best Advertising Cookbooklet from Spry Shortening.

Chocolate Rapture Cake. Spicy Prune Whip Cake. Marble Cake Supreme. Fudge-Frosted Layer Cake. "Happy Birthday" Coconut Cake.  And that's just the first five!

The title of this promotional recipe booklet is the real winner though, and testament to the era.  According to "Aunt Jenny", author of the foreword, "they're tested, they're sure-fire and you'll find they make the most delicious cakes any husband could ever ask for."  She goes on to ask, "Which one will HE choose? And now you can run your own popularity poll-bake each one of these ten beauties, and see which wins with HIM."  Husband or not, running a cake competition with these ten recipes would be great fun for anyone.  And, with frosting recipes and decorating tips throughout, this is a really fun little cookbooklet.

Measuring approximately 7 1/2" x 5 1/4" with 16 pages, 10 Cakes Husbands Like Best will be a treasured addition to any cookbook or mid-century collection.

Shipping will be calculated at check-out.
