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.

Indydebi does say her friend gave that recipe to her over 30 years ago. So, makes sense.

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!
