Edna Gelder 1954

December 23rd, 2014

Mrs. Gelder lived on Routes 5 & 20 west of Geneva, near the Seneca Castle Road. She was a well-known baker and was famous for her Christmas fruitcakes. (If you’ve only had the storebought, dry cakes with waxy fruit, you need to try a homemade fruitcake.) For many years, she sent one to the White House, and shipped them to New York City for sale.
