Day 28: Halloween Party Cake

Halloween is getting close and today's Spry ad for a Halloween Party Cake is a perfect wartime way to celebrate! This comes from the October 1942 Woman's Home Companion. The recipe for this cake calls for honey, which is always interesting when chocolate is concerned. The marshmallow frosting uses corn syrup. So, no sugar used at all, which would have saved on your sugar ration.

I love the artwork on this one too. Very festive!
