Have a party this week for 150 people and the theme is the 1960's, I need 10 to 15 desserts from the 60's... Have a couple of ideas but would appreciate any input / ideas ? Thanks !
Desserts from the 1960's ?
oh for sure, jello mould, w/canned fruit cocktail, or the one with cream cheese and crushed pineapple.
and that dream whip stuff
Ha ha! I was going to say, who wants to eat that crap they made in the 60's? Ironically, I collect those old cookbooks from that time because I have a morbid fascination with the culinary dark ages.
Also, Google is your friend. On a whim I did a search for "Desserts from the 1960's".
Here are links from just a couple of sites I found.
I Love You Alice B. Toklas brownies and Haschish (sp) fudge. Oh, and ambrosia. Ick. Seriously, boxed mixes, Hostess and Drake's products, i.e. Ho Ho, ding dongs, ring dings, twinkies, yankee doodles, devil dogs. And, growing up in New York, bakery cakes or Entennman's anything. LOL.
ETA: You might look up Twinkie-Misu. (Tiramisu made with Twinkies.) It would be better than the ghastly food/desserts from the era.
P.S. "If you remember the 60's, you weren't really there."
