December 21, 1953 The Nice, Quiet Party with E.S.S. Students

Mary was really dreaming.  She and the nut cracker doll changed into a prince and a princess.  He invited her to go to the country of candy.  So they went through the pasture of sugar candy, the woods of oranges and by the river of lemonade...

Diary Entry:  Dec. 21, 1953

Chiffon Cake, 1953
"Made a chiffon cake to send to church for R&R program.  Made another batch of cookies.  After kids in bed we went to Takarazuka to a dance for E.S.S.  Lovely round ballroom with springing floor (only one in Orient), huge Xmas tree, beautiful paper decorations.  E.S.S. had also invited Indian, Chinese & Palestinian students from Kinki University.  Nice, quiet party--no chaperones (one mother on side)."

  1. This cake sounds so wonderfully yummy! My maternal grandma used to make the most scrumptiously lovely orange chiffon cake. She rarely shares her recipes (no idea why), so I don't have it, but I've found a couple in 1950s cookbooks before that I think are pretty much the same (and as my mom says she remember her mom making it since she was a little girl, my grandma's recipe probably is from the 50s).

    Thank you very much for your recent blog comments, dear Ann, I really appreciate them and hope you're having a jubilant holiday celebration!
