Too Cold to Cream

The first step in the preparation of the Shaker receipt (recipe), Mother Ann’s Birthday Cake, is to beat butter and sugar into a smooth cream.  The butter was to be the best sweet butter, fresh if possible.   Even though the program was April 1st, it was so cold in the cabin that the bowl of butter and sugar needed to be placed in a warmer location so it could be beaten.  Notice the stiff  batter with the spoon standing!
