“This was posted by request. This cake is a very old recipe, and you do have to look in bulk food stores or in the candy dept, for the wintergreen wafer mints. They are the hard pink ones. I frost this with Frosting Supreme 1965 Updated weighted out candies and it takes 40 of them for the cake. (227 gr) that is what I used. Also Dare candy now sells them in the large bags.”
2 8 inch cakes
