Object History
Cake boxes were made to share pieces of a 25,000 pound, 24-foot high offical Centennial cake cake that was displayed at Lougheed Mall. It was baked by George Molecey of Nanaimo, using his Princess Margaret 1958 cake recipe. Newspapers reported it to be the largest fruit cake ever made, and it ws decorated with a tonne of bright coloured icing. The cost of the cake was $50,000 with 15 professional baking assistants working on it for six weeks. The cake celebrated the province's 100th birthday, and the first cut was made by Chief Dan George and Burnaby Mayor, R. W. Prittle.
