The December 1946 Family Circle issue showed some fun holiday
desserts that set a festive table.
The first traditional centerpiece is the ever popular Cloche. Using 'fruit cocktail' as the inspiration, a wood-based cloche is filled with seasonal fruits.
Fresh pineapples, grapes, pears, peaches, and cherries overflow. You know Vintage wax fruit or modern artificial would work too.
It's a simple, but elegant classic,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
The next edible decoration for the table was an OH moment for me,
it;s a 'Candlestick Salad'. In all my collecting of vintage cookbooks and magazines, I had never seen this christmasy holiday salad.
Isn't this the most ingenious use of fruit and veggies? What kid of all ages wouldn't dig in? Here's a close up and the recipe.
Wouldn't this be cute to use for a birthday too?!.....for someone diabetic or on a special diet?
Yum Yum Yum...
