National Pound Cake Day. Bet ya didn’t expect that one. Apparently any event can be a holiday. Ever heard of Earmuff Day? National Deep Dish Pizza Day? Sneak Some Zucchini onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Night? No? Okay, how about Send $20 to Trusty Sidekick Day? These are real holidays people! Okay, maybe not that last one. But it should be.
Anyway, Hotzenfeffer found a gem within a gem: Hidden inside an old cookbook she bought, there was this way awesome little booklet:
How great is the cover illustration? (One thing I do know: that woman is not eating shortening-laden baked goods with a waist that small.) The booklet is filled with recipes that use products like Presto and Spry. Totally 50’s. That decade rocked. You just can’t get un-PC advertising or product design like this anymore:
But then, tucked inside that amazing little booklet was this:
How fun! Hotzenfeffer was off in the stratosphere with these lucky finds. Don’t you just love when little treasures like this find their way into your life?
Has anyone even heard of Spry? Do you still bake with Presto? Please share in the comments if you have; we’re very curious.
So what are you waiting for? Go celebrate! Eat, drink, and be pound-cakey! And then maybe run on the treadmill for a bit, too.
P.S. In craft-related news, it’s also International Scrapbooking Industry Day. See, we really CAN relate everything to crafting!
