Of course, a cake is appreci- ated by the family, too, and you may have to hide it in or- :let to have any for the company. We make a good many cakes here, and they are all de- voured about as fast as they come from the oven and get a itfle frosting spread on them.

Sift together flour, baking powder and alt and add alternately with milk to creamed mixture, mixing well after each addition. eat egg whites stiff but not dry; fold into batter. Fold in finely crushed pepper- mint candy. Pour to a greased eight-inch pan. Bake at 325 degrees F. or i hour. Frost with SnowdCfft Frosting. ** ** MINCEMEAT CAKE cup butter. I cup nuts.

So many lovely and beautiful pictures come on calen- dars these days. When the calendar part is finished, cut the picture out, mount on a different colored background of art construction paper, the kind children use in grade school, and pin on he wall with thumb tacks.
