4 lbs powdered sugar
4 pounds butter
4 pounds flour
Cream the sugar and butter until light. Add eggs slowly, two at a time.
Add flavoring. Fold in flour. Line pans or molds with paper. Make pans
2 to 3 inches in thickness. Bake in a medium heat. This mixture will
make 16 pounds of cake. This makes an acceptable wedding cake.
Note - This mix must be made with all materials at a low temperature.
Be sure that butter is good and cold before creamed with sugar.
