1950'S TWO COMPARTMENT YELLOW CAKE-PIE CARRIER, CAKE KEEP

Doris had a dilemma of enormous proportion. She just could not remember if her cousin Mildred liked cake or pie. Doris’ mother had asked her to bring dessert to cousin Mildred’s 50th birthday but she vaguely remembered an incident a few years back. The details were sketchy but Doris remembered Mildred had raised quite a fuss at her 45th birthday party. Apparently Mildred had a cake (or pie) phobia and was overcome by a panic attack when served a piece of pie (or cake), but she couldn’t remember which one she was scared of, and was too embarrassed to ask. So to be on the safe side, Doris made both a cake and a pie and placed them in her cake/pie carrier.

When the grand moment arrived, Doris placed the cake carrier on the table in front of Mildred. She could see Mildred eye’s begin to widen and her hands began to tremble.

“Tha...that’s not a...ca...ca...cake is it?” Mildred asked as she raised her hands over her eyes.

Doris quickly lifted the lid off to reveal a beautiful lemon chiffon pie underneath without Mildred ever seeing the menacing cake which was located in the compartment just below.

“Oh my no, cousin Mildred, I know you don’t like cake so I made you a lemon chiffon pie.” Doris responded.

Relief swept over the entire room full of party attenders and Mildred grinned from ear to ear at the calming sight of the cream pie.
