On the sixth of January, Twelfth Night was celebrated in the olden

times. Then all the pastry cooks did their finest baking and decked

their windows with marvelous productions of cakes.

If a party is being planned for this day invite your guests to come

dressed as cakes. Just the ladies will do this and the men can wear

miniature cooking utensils if they choose.

Give each lady a number and each man a pencil and slip of paper. The

men must guess what cakes the ladies represent and write their answers

with the corresponding numbers on the paper.

When all the cakes have been guessed the correct list is read by the

hostess and the one having the largest number of correct answers may

be awarded a prize.

A prize may also be awarded to the lady attired in the best

representation. One dressed in dark brown would suggest "chocolate

cake"; another in orange-colored cheesecloth, "orange cake"; another

with wreaths of raisins, currants and citron, suggest "fruit cake";

while one in just a plain dress with no signs suggestive of any cake

may be "lady cake"; another carrying a hammer and pounding it whenever

she saw fit, suggests "pound cake."
