Looking through a "Vineyard Fare" cookbook compiled by the Vineyard Haven Branch of the Martha's Vineyard Hospital Auxiliary, dated 1954, I saw this cake recipe. My husband lived on the Cagney farm as his father was the caretaker,during the early 1950s, and he knew the children of the Cagneys. "The kids were at his house often, because Billie, their mother didn't cook very often!" She suggests an orange filling and Seven-minute white icing, and sprinkled all over with coconut. What a special birthday cake. Maybe it was Jimmy's choice! I wonder?
