This page from a vintage cookbook includes recipes for Lady Baltimore Cake and Lord Baltimore Cake Also included on the page is an illustration of a white layer cake on a green platter. A reddish brown frosting separates the layers of the cake; the top and sides are covered with white frosting. Here is a cleaner version of the cake. I scanned the original page from Cake Secrets, by Igleheart Brothers Inc., 1928 P. Co., Inc. (copyright was not renewed).
