A Slice of Celebration

When the cause for a celebration is upcoming, an announcement or invitation to attend is usually sent prior to the event’s date.  However, there are some events that take place spontaneously and but for the quick of eye & camera, will go unheralded.

I think all levels of achievement – from graduation to mastering the hoola hoop – are deserving of a nod and a cake, or this Refreshment Hour Sandwich Loaf, which appeared in a 1949 Workbasket:

I can personally vouch for the delectability of the Sandwich Loaf, which was served at the  reception of my exhibit’s  opening at Ironworld in Chisholm, MN, back in January of this year. When I first noted it on the buffet, it had yet to be sliced, and I thought it was dessert.

That I’m still talking about it, let alone took a photo of it during the event, is telling of my fondness for cake, even when the cake is a loaf.
