Lizzy's Wedding Cake

I've been reading my great grandmother's diary from 1894-95.


I found her wedding cake recipe in the back of the diary. I tried to see if I could make the cake as she did. I think I was close. The "filling" is good. The cake needs some work. I need to figure out the difference between 1800's and today. They usually cooked ingredients, which I did. I then made the mistake of using a beater to add the flour. I should have spooned it in.

I will try to get more letters on here. I have a stack next to me on the coffee table. Thought everyone might enjoy Lizzy's Wedding Cake.

NOTE: PHOTO OF RECEIPT WAS ABSENT. WILL TRY TO GET IT BACK UP LATER. (8/6/2017)
