For these occasions the cake's the thing! A dramatic cake plus a festive punch bowl — that's all you need for a successful party.

Men love sweets and generally admit it. So no matter how they may pooh-pooh the idea of a birthday party, they'll be pleased when a beautiful, rich, extravagantly decorated birthday cake appears. Skip the candles, probably, unless there are children in the family who insist on helping Daddy blow them out. But don't miss the opportunity to have the cake his favorite — chocolate, angel's food, golden daffodil, or marble — and with the frosting swirled high and handsome.

For a birthday cocktail party for a man, this Appetizer Cake is a delightful novelty.
