Treasure Chest Thursday -- Grandma's Cake Plate
When grandma Smedley made a cake this is the plate and lid she would use. If I remember right the kind of cake we found the most under there was german chocolate or a spice cake.
On the bottom of the plate is a piece of tape with her name on it because sometimes she would make a cake and take it to various social events and that would ensure that it was returned to her. I have left the tape there and hopefully it will stay there forever and ever and ever amen! (It has made it so far through numerous washings.)
The plate is made by Fireking and it is peach luster in color with a laurel pattern. I enjoy the plate so much that I have started to collect the set. The only pieces I don't have are 3 other plates just like this one, and two big bowls.
