EASTER EGG CAKE: Retro Ad & Recipe

Happy Easter! I posted a Chocolate Bunny Cake recipe this past week, but be sure and Check out this Easter Egg Cake Recipe. It's a"Retro" Swans Down and Baker's Chocolate Ad from March 30, 1953--that's 60 years ago! "Quick Like a Bunny Make this Gay Easter Egg Cake." This "Golden Yellow" Cake has Chocolate icing. Easy and pretty. You can, of course, update the recipe to make your own yellow cake and your own icing, but the idea is there. Most kitchen and craft stores have special pans to create an egg shape, but if you want to go retro, follow this recipe and carve the egg into shape!

It's funny how amateurish the decorating looks. With food all the rage now, this ad would never fly. Neat post.
