In honor of our recent comments/discussion on the 1965 "Betty Crocker's New Boys and Girls Cook Book" and in anticipation of the upcoming holiday, I present page 135: Drum Cake for the Fourth of July!
I know everyone is going to whip up this little creation, so I'll type out the recipe in case the print is too small in the picture:
"Bake cake batter in round layer pans as directed on 1 package of our devils food cake mix. Prepare frosting as directed on 1 package of our fluffy white frosting mix. Frost cooled cake. On sides of cake, press into frosting at angles striped peppermint candy sticks. Place a big red maraschino cherry at ends of sticks. If you like, cross two candy stricks on top of cake for drumsticks."
Somehow the maraschino cherries on the candy sticks sound a little weird to me now... But, hey, the cake looks pretty dang festive, so that's all that really matters.
