Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Party Sweets [1957]


The front cover shows two mint green milk glass platters filled with candies on a dark brown background. Between the platters is a drawing of a yellow and white wrapped candy with the title and author's name in red and black print. The back has "Free! Modern Revised Edition of 'You and Your Contented Baby'" on the top half green background with a picture of the pamphlet in a white notched circle on the left. Below on a pink background is information to send 25¢ for "Fun To Cook Book" with a picture of the pamphlet on a notched white circle on the left. At the bottom is "Carnation Evaporated Milk" and "the double-rich milk that whips!" on either side of a can of Carnation Evaporated Milk. Amid the recipes for candies, sauces, toppings, icings, sherbets, freezes and cakes are illustrated instructions for Quick Chocolate Fudge and photographs of two desserts. At the end is a yellow box with information to send for a free copy of the Carnation recipe book, "Fail-Proof Recipes." The original mailing envelope is included. This is a reprint of the 1953 pamphlet of the same name with a different back cover.
