Thought you would get a kick out of this. A friend of mine died of cancer a few years ago and her daughter called me yesterday and asked me I wanted her cake books and all her Wilton yearbooks. I said sure...I'd love 'em.
She brought them over this morning and I started paging through them. They start at 1972. When I opened the 1973 yearbook, there was a handwritten recipe for " High Humidity Buttercream...Guaranteed to hold in the hottest and muggiest weather" sealed with strapping tape on the inside cover.
It was Indydebi's recipe complete with the Dreamwhip. I thought that was wild...I know I use it, but I got it here. This book is 36 years old.
That is such a sweet story. Thanks for sharing
That is a wonderful story - sorry for your loss. I will have to try the indydebi recipe - I now use sugar shack's. TFS!
Indydebi does say her friend gave that recipe to her over 30 years ago. So, makes sense.
All I know, is that it's delicious!
that is so cool!
(and I'm envious you have those old books! I just bought one on ebay that is from (what looks like) the 60's. There are only 10 cakes in the book and they all look alike to me! hahahaha!
