FILLING FOR ANNIVERSARY CAKE
Yolks of six eggs,
Three cups of sugar,
Enough water to dissolve sugar thoroughly.
Put sugar and water on to cook. Let it cook until it spins a thread, then gradually pour it over the yellows, which have been beaten until thick. Beat until filling becomes creamy, add one teaspoonful of vanilla, and spread on layers.
