    Does anyone know the recipe for Silver Pound Cake?  That was my wedding cake 26 years ago and it was absolutely wonderful.  I would love to make it if anyone can share the recipe.  Thank you for your help.  Paula

    Sorry Paula, I looked through all my cook books from the 40's, 50's and up . The only one close was a white cake supreme.

    Paula, was it a loaf pan cake or a round pan layer cake? There are recipes for a layer cake called silver white cake like this one?
