Canape Cake

I've mentioned the fixation in past decades of making foods look like cake. Think Sandwich Loaf. Here's another from the Quick Dishes for the Woman in a Hurry:  Canape Wedges. Very odd blending of flavors.

Carefully trim bottom crust from a large round loaf of pumpernickel bread.  Cut 3 slices, each about 1/2 in. thick, from loaf and use as layers. Spread 2 layers with process cheese food spread.  Put slices together, spread-side up.  Top with third layer.  Blend 1 can (3 oz.) deviled ham with 1 or 2 tablespoons ketchup. (Oh my.) Mix thoroughly before spreading.  Spread mixture over third layer.  Top with wedge-shape slices of cheese.  Chill in refrigerator until serving time. Following outline of cheese wedges, cut loaf into wedge-shape servings.

There's a Sardine Canapes version too.

I'll take a pass on that party!

I also have a large library of vintage cookbooks. Wondering if you have a copy of this gem.

It still boggles my mind. Will stay in your blog.

Thanks for the nice comments. I love your blog as well. I may be contacting you for 50's patterns! I have started wearing them to my shows.
I do not have that one - but it looks fabulous. Clearly, I will have to find one! Can't wait to see what you made!
