1960s WEST BEND COPPER ANODIZED ALUMINUM COVERED CAKE SERVER

Barbara Peterson tried desperately to hold back her excitement. She'd worked for hours to create the triple layer, double chocolate cake with mocha chiffon icing so it would appear just as she saw it in the September, 1962 issue of Good Housekeeping. She knew that it would be the talk of the First Lutheran Church of Wilmar, Minnesota annual all church potluck. She carefully placed the cake carrier that held her prize jewel onto the dessert table and waited for an appropriate time for the "grand revealing." As she was placing the covered cake she happened to glance up to see Dora Blanching who was herself setting her covered cake into position on the dessert table. Neither Barbara or Dora noticed that Glenda Wilton was eying them as she too was placing her covered cake onto the table. All three of the woman's eyes met as the each simultaneously lifted the covers off their cake servers. Then in unison, the three gasped in horror as they each realized they had made the exact same Good Housekeeping double chocolate cake with mocha chiffon icing.

The episode would live on in Lutheran Women's circles for years to come, often used in devotions on "The Pitfalls of Pride." But to others is fondly recalled by many as the best covered dish supper ever held at First Lutheran--the delicious chocolate cake being its foremost attribute. _______________________________________________________________
