Cover Cakes of Christmas Past
It’s up to us to create a cake that’s unique, doable, delicious, and has the “wow” factor for our December cover cakes. Read on as we share the backstories.
A tradition is born when we put this high-rising family recipe from Sissy Nash and her daughter Cathy Nash Cary of Louisville on the cover. The magazine literally flies off the newsstand, and editor John Floyd—ever able to spot a successful trend—decides to repeat the experiment the following year. It is such a success that The Big White Cake becomes a Southern Living hallmark.
