Sphere: Small Wedding Cake

 Encore For A Great Cake
A smaller version of the wedding cake from the September 1972 issue
Sphere Magazine, October 1973

You guys, I was so psyched to receive this vintage issue of Betty Crocker's Sphere Magazine! This is probably the most coveted issues of Sphere. It sounds super delicious! I do not have the September 1972 issue; but if I ever find that issue one day, I'll definitely be sharing the large version of the wedding cake recipe.

*07/11/17: Click Americana has a 1971 Pillsbury date bar cake recipe. You could probably use it in place of the discontinued Betty Crocker mix. 

"Tender pound cake & moist date bar layers, conveniently made from mixes, layered with Coffee Buttercream Frosting & Apricot Filling and sprinkled with cherry liqueur, are worthy of the most significant celebration. Don't forget that the small meringue mushrooms you serve with the cake will bring good luck to grand occasions!"

If you're thinking "I have not seen a date bar mix in a grocery store", no worries. Even though Betty Crocker's Date Bar Mix was discontinued, Betty Crocker's Ask Betty suggests here that you try this date bar recipe.

Good Luck Meringue Mushrooms
