Magical Jack-o-Lantern Cake - Halloween Art Print
This party looks like a spooky good time! Originating from a 1908 postcard, it offers a glimpse into a Halloween tradition of yesteryears: the Fortune Cake. Reminiscent of a Mardi Gras King Cake, this Irish and Scottish custom involved baking a cake with a small token hidden inside. The recipient of the ring or prize would face various fates, from impending marriage in the coming year to becoming the spouse of the cook or even requiring dental work—accounts of the tradition's outcomes vary. Nevertheless, this practice sheds light on the prevalence of antique Halloween cards featuring cakes. This image is also included in our Halloween Postcard Box!
