Cut-Up Kid: Boy (Jack) Cake © 1959
Hurray! Finally the cake I voted for! Monday, the girl version!
1. Bake a round and square 8-inch cake layers. Cool. Cut two narrow strips for for boy's legs. Arrange pieces as shown.
2. Tint Seven Minute Frosting* blue for trousers, white for shirt. Now tint Baker's Angel Flake Coconut blue for trousers.
3. Use toasted coconut for his hair and finish, as shown, with a licorice belt and bow tie. Blue candy makes his eyes; his nose and mouth are gumdrops.
*What is "Seven Minute Frosting," and how do I make it?
