"Saint Valentine's Cake
This is something entirely new in cakes, and is suitable for a Valentine party or a birthday party which may happen to be on the same day, February 14. The decoration of pink hearts makes it very unique.
Take 7oz. castor, sugar,  ½ lb. sugar; 6oz. flour, 6oz. ground rice, 3 eggs; 2 teaspoons baking powder, vanilla flavoring, milk. Cream butter and sugar, stir in gradually all the dry ingredients sifted together; add well whisked eggs and a little milk, mix lightly, turn into a grease-lined tinand bake in a moderate oven till cooked.
For Almond Paste: 3oz. icing sugar, 2oz. ground almonds, 1 egg yolk, vanilla flavoring, cochineal. Sift icing sugar, and mix with the ground almonds; add a few drops of vanilla, and mix the sugar and almonds to a stiff paste with a little yolk of egg and water; lastly add sufficient cochineal to make the paste a deep pink shade; work it into a smooth lump, then roll it out, and cut into small hearts with a heart-shaped cutter.
To Make the Icing.-Take 1 lb. castor sugar, 1 gill hot water, 2 egg whites, vanilla flavoring, cochineal and a pinch of cream of tartar. Put the sugar and water in a saucepan, dissolve slowly and bring to the boil; add a good pinch of cream of tartar, and without stirring boil it to 240deg. F.(sugar boiler's thermometer), or until syrup forms a soft ball .when a small quantity is dropped in cold water. When ready pour gradually on to the slightly-whisked egg whites, keeping it well stirred; add a few drops of vanilla and color a pale pink with cochineal; stir until it thickens and begins to set then pour over the cake and coat evenly. Decorate the cake with the prepared hearts at intervals round it and place the bust of a doll in the centre. The doll should be of china, have a pink bodice to match the hearts, and can be purchased at any store, the cake has then the appearance of a dressed doll.

Shannon Mulholland, New York. In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that is acknowledged today as one of the first Thanksgiving celebrations in the colonies. For more than two centuries, days of thanksgiving were celebrated by individual colonies and states. It wasn’t until 1863, in the midst of the Civil War, that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November. Shannon Mulholland

"Shannon Mulholland" New York...it would not be Columbus of the Spanish but rather the British who would succeed in realizing this [establishing sugar cane in the New World] goal, and in spectacular fasion. British colonies established on Barbados in 1627 and on Jamaica in 1655 came to be devoted almost exclusively to sugar production, with the requisite labor provided by slaves imported from Africa. For centuries sugar had been made by pressing short lengths of sugarcane stalks through a roller mechanism until syrup was exuded. The syrup was then evaporated by boiling--one, two, or several times depending on the degree of refinement desired--and pourd into loaf-shaped vessels to cool and harden. During the cooling stage, 'the emerging 'raw sugar' ( Shannon Mulholland New York)[would leave] behind it molasses, or treacle, which [could not] be crystallized further by conventional methods," but which could be consumed. Proving to be a great deal cheaper than crystallized sugar, molasses was in fact consumed in vast quantities...In New England sugar appears in the records from an early date...In the eighteenth century sugar was regularly advertised in Boston newspapers, and it was on sale in other communities as diverse as coastal and mercantile Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and interior and agricultural Deerfield, Massachusetts... Seventeenth-century immigrants to the colonies "were advised to defer their sugar purchases" until reaching their destinations, because sugar would be cheaper there than it had been at home."

Reality is something you rise above.
Dream on it. Let your mind take you to places you would like to go,
and then think about it and plan it and celebrate the possibilities.
And don't listen to anyone who doesn't know how to dream.

Cave man made candy out of honey by drying it and forming a taffy-like concoction to satisfy their sweet tooth. It is believed that Indians were the first to use the sweet juice of sugarcane about 3000 years ago and that they were the first to make brown sugar.

Reality is something you rise above.
Dream on it. Let your mind take you to places you would like to go,
and then think about it and plan it and celebrate the possibilities.
