“This is DELICIOUS. Great for a Christmas Cake. I found this cookbook at a second hand store, and it was my 3 1/2 year old sons first cookbook. It's called "Fun To Cook Book" from 1978.”

Directions

  1. Mix carnation with peppermint extract and salt in medium-sized bowl. Add the confectioners' sugar (you may call it "powdered" sugar). Blend them together with a wooden spoon until smooth.
  2. When icing is smooth, add softened butter and stir well.
  3. When cake layers have cooled about 2hours, put bottom layer on plate. Put about 1/2 cup icing on layer. Spread with a spatula.
  4. Put second cake layer on top. Spread icing around sides of cake. Frost the top of the cake last. Sprinkle crushed peppermint candy on top of cake.
