I use this photo for some of my talks (I give presentations on Vintage Cookbooks, and this photo is from the Crazy About Cakes show presented at 9 libraries in Winter 2010.) , as it shows poke cake which comes into fashion at times, and also mini cheesecakes the early 70's cocktail party staple. Joanne Fluke uses mini cherry cheesecakes in one of her great Hannah Swensen mysteries. I think they became popular after cherries jubilee went out.
These are easy and fun to make. You can do it with a cheesecake mix, even. Take vanilla wafers and put them in cupcake papers. Pour in some cheesecake mix, made up, and bake. Top with fruit.
Or - I've made a new version. Enjoy!
