Make easy new "Cut-Up Cakes" Exciting new cake book!

This "cake-a-month calendar" was first published in 1956 and was superceded by a new cookbook for cut-up cakes in 1959. The front artwork, the slogan "NEW Tender Thin Slices" (introduced 1956) and the "Cut-Up Cakes" offering as "new" suggests that this item was made in 1956 and probably not later than 1957.
