Old Home Store test kitchen results ...scrummy!!!

From research, the name comes from the two textures in this 'cake.' The crumbly, crunch 'rough' and the soft, sweet 'smooth,' representing the ups and downs of marriage.


A Mennonite version has also been found, which uses orange or lemon juice in place of the water. Other variations are topped with dessicated coconut or icing sugar for a very sweet tooth.

This cake is served at both weddings and funerals and the run up to Christmas.



Original vintage porcelain 1940s wedding cake decorations and beautiful 1930s cake/sandwich plate all available from The Old Home Store.


Others also in stock.


Silver plated wedding cake serving tongs also available (not shown).
