Event Description

TV personality, food historian, and author Francine Segan traces America's sweet tooth back to 1776 when ladies sold delicious brandy- and fruit-flavored "Election Cakes" outside polling centers during the all-day voting process. Discover what happened to desserts during WWII sugar rationing and why the expression, "American as apple pie," is a huge mistake. Learn the amusing history and fun stories associated with some of our most loved desserts: Martha Washington's Currant Cake, Boston Cream Pie, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Chocolate chip cookies, the 1930's classic "Mystery Cake," and many more. Includes dessert tastings and recipe handouts so you can indulge your sweet tooth at home too. Members; $8 for adults, $4 for children under 12. Non-members; $10 for adults, $6 for children under 12.  Call (407) 836-7010 to register. For more information, please visit thehistorycenter.org.
