ENGLISH PUDDINGS AND CAKES GO
ALL OVER THE WORLD.
Strange as It May Seem, There Is a Fashion
In the Manufacture of Wedding Cakes.
A Glance at the luterlor of a Bis; Cake
Store Cake of Many Kind.
Christmas cakes, New Year's cakes.
Twelfth cakes, christening cakes, birthday
cakes and wedding cakes all come of the
same wealthy family that Is to say, they
are as rich as rich can be, A high author
ity upon the whole subject chatted a day or
two ago about them. It was a painfully
appetizing conversation, for it took place in
a showroom of palatial proportions in
which were to be seen specimens of every
kind of cake which mankind has invented
for social consumption. A cake, it must be
premised, cannot be eaten in strict seclu
sion. It must be enjoyed in pleasant com
pany or it becomes indigest ible, and with
out a cake the Christmas board would be
"We sell thousands of Christmas cakes,"
said the gentleman whose firm has prob
ably produced more cakes of every variety
than any one house in the world. "They
closely resemble the wedding cake, which
is a recognized institution. By the way, I
think wedding cakes are getting larger and
heavier, and certainly the sugar work orna
mentation is more elaborate and artistically
executed. Necessarily the decoration must
be in white and silver, but sometimes real
hothouse flowers are used to adorn the
"What is the largest size wedding cake?"
"We sell some weighing five hundred
weight or six hundredweight, and the
largest for royalties has been about ten
hundredweight. A saw edged knife is sup
plied lor tlie ceremony 01 cutting the cake,'
which is frequently done, however, in ad
vance, and a silver trowel is used by the
bride to withdraw the segment easily."
On all sides were weddincr cakes on
shelves, some of them with a light deposit
of almond ic?r.g upon tfceir top3. TLcy
were all ordered fur forthcoming marriages.
"The icing,'' remarked the guide, "is
done as required. A very large cake is
baked in sections and afterward fitted to
gether. That man there is busy cutting
smaller cakes in halves, for you can never
tell from the outside appearance whether
the cake is thoroughly well baked inside.
We therefore test every one."
"Now what is the real difference between
a wedding cake and a Christmas plum
"It is generally in the ornamentation.
The top of a Christmas cake is coated with
sugar icing and picked out wit h colors
say pink and there is also an inscription.
A Father Christmas stands in the center,
and there are small fancy ornaments around
the figure. Some, too, have holly on the
top, but people now and then prefer sweet
"And you say that there is a grt-nt de
mand for them?"
"We send them all over the world. We
occasionally export cakes and puddings to
people abroad sufficient to last them the
whole year round. They go to India, Af
rica, China, Egypt in fact, everywhere. A
New Year's cake is similar t o a lhrifnias
cake, with fancy decoration ii.iu f.'i.ivs."
"Do you find that Twelfth rake ;.re de
clining in popularity?"
"Well, perhaps we do not s: II t i.iti- so
many. They are as yon know li;c.;; ted
with figures, and a sheet of characurs a d
conundrums accompanies each cr.ke, ac
cording to the old custom. They are drawn
"Is the plan still followed of embedding
various articles in the cake?"
"Yes, that is still done. People bring us
rings, coins and buttons to put in the cake.
In fact, we have inclosed in the cake gold
watches and diamond rings. But it has
generally been arranged beforehand where
they should cut for such a prize a little
rosette or colored ribbon in the decoration
would be a sufficient guide."
Conversation then turned upon school
cakes, which are as full of currants and
sultanas as can be desired. But for peo
ple of maturer years the fashion in cakes,
except, on festivul occasions, when the rule
may be broken through, runs upon a light
er and most digestible cake. Here in the
neat cardboard boxes are piles of Dundee
cakes, made of butter, flour and eggs, and
better than a dough cake of the schoolboy
kind. A Dundee cake has its due propor
tion of sultanas and peel, and it is rather
richer in quality than the popular Scotch
Madeira. There are other varieties of light
pound c:ikes, such as seed and almond, and
if the ta.ie inclines to a heavier article
currant c&ke in various degrees of richness
can be had, and it is remarkable how con
servative successive generations are in
their liking for good substantial cake.
Before-glancing at a few of the astonish
ing array of del icacies in the way of biscuits,
attention is attracted to a huge store of
plum puddings. Kacb pudding is in its own
neat white basin and securely tied up in its
"We are making 17,000 this year," says
the gentleman who is acting as guide
through this palace of dainties. "A great
many are sent abroad. They are dispatched
in tin lined cases, sometimes thirty to forty
in a case."
"But can you tell me who it is who buys
"Regular cust omcrs come year after year,
for twenty or more at a time, to give away
as Christmas presents. Most army officers,
and those of the navy, too, want puddings.
The puddings which are sent abroad are
not packed in basins, but in cloths, for they
travel better. The puddings in these basins
are for home consumption. They are ready
"And are of ail sizes?"
"The largest pudding costs, say, ten guin
eas, and it would be suflicient for 500 or 600
men." London Telegraph.
Bow He Made Them Talk.
A youth on a bicycle trip through the
Nutmeg State frequently had occasion to
ask directions about the roads, etc Three
or four when asked how far a certain town
was simply stood with their mouths agape
and said not a word. The young fellow
finally became exasperated and hit upon a
plan "to make the next person he met
answer him. So, when he overtook a
farmer on a load of hay and, putting the
question, receiving no reply, he put tip his
hands and began wiggling his fingers as
though talking in the deaf and dumb sign
language, The old farmer couldn't stand
this imputation that he was a mute and
quickly gave full directions, New York
