1/8 Photos of Mrs. Morrison's Mace Cake
Chef Kate's Note:
According to John Shields, Mrs. Morrison was the housekeeper at an Episcopal Church in Baltimore for many years and made this cake a staple at generations of church events. If you want to sweeten/fancy it up, add whipped cream or ice cream and strawberries. I think it's quite nice just as it is.
