I have looking for an old recipe?/decorating book published in the eighties or late seventies. It was hard cover approximately 12 x 14, glossy, full color and most of the cakes were marzipan covered and very beautiful. I believe it was English. The cake I am looking for has "A Teddy Bear Picnic" with the bears lounging on towels, in bathing suits, sunglasses, etc.
I have found all of my families' old recipes online. But I have a photographic memory and could search the exact name of the book or the recipe name. Without that, it is hard. Any pieces of the names may help.
I don't know how quick you need this book but I think I have that one. My daughter was always buying me specialty books and I remember the teddy bear picnic one, because when growing up taking tap lessions we had to dance to the song teddy bear picnic (dating myself here!). So I remeber thinking about the dancing when looking at the cake theme.
If you still need it I will look for it and we can work out getting it to you. I have hundreds of cake books and magazines and cookbooks so it might take me a little while to find the bin that this one is kept in. I try to keep them by theme.
have a good day
The teddy bears are not having bathing suits, but I hope this helps.
