Cake and Fluffy Icing

I love the handwriting on this vintage recipe card!  You can tell by the penmanship that this is an oldie.  Try this vintage recipe for your next birthday celebration or family dinner. 

This vintage recipe is for a classic yellow cake, flavored with vanilla and lemon extract and topped with a Fluffy Icing.  The icing is made with sugar, water, egg whites, vanilla, and almond extract.
