Independence Cake

$17.99

Master of the historical fiction picture book Deborah Hopkinson takes us back to late eighteenth-century America and the discombobulated home of Mrs. Bean, mother of six strapping sons, who simply can't manage—until Amelia Simmons arrives and puts things in order. To honor the brand-new president, George Washington, she presents him with thirteen Independence Cakes—one for each colony. Author's Note and original recipe included!
