BE PREPARED: If you plan to serve our kitchen staff's confection for a youngster's birthday party, you might be in for a land rush. Why? With this sweet treat on the table, you're bound to have lots of little "settlers" on your hands...claiming their territory around the birthday cake! The CT home economists started out simply—by using a purchased cake mix—then added sunbonnets and flowers with brightly tinted frosting. The decorating how-tos and hints are all in the directions here. What's more, this dessert is made of ingredients you likely already have on your homestead. So you'll find you can sweeten your special social with little fuss.
A little one is on the way...that message will be clear as can be when you roll out this carriage confection for a baby shower! To make the sweet treat, our cooks used ordinary round pans to bake two same-size cakes, then cut them into basic shapes to produce a buggy. Fancy cake decorating techniques provided all of the pretty finishing touches. Need a dessert that serves more than 12 guests? Prepare two buggies—making one baby blue and one pink.
"I often serve this impressive cake for dinner parties or whenever a special dessert is called for," notes Bonnie Malloy of Norwood, Pennsylvania. "It's delicious and also very pretty."
