Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Yes, they were called Skyscrapers and they were only a dime, that was a lot of ice cream, the scoop was shaped like a trowel instead of round. Klondikes were also from Isaly's. That was some good creamy ice cream. Sorry for diverging from Spanish Bar Cake.

Yes, McKeesport, PA, 30 miles from Pittsburgh, our Isaly's was in White Oak across the Blvd from McKeesport.
I lived in CA for 10 years, San Diego, then El Cajon, CA. I've been to Ocean City.
A&P Markets - had forgotten about them. There was one in Westwood, Calif. just down from my dad's business and I remember it was big enough for just about anything you needed - but small enough to care and be a "local" neighborhood-style market atmosphere. Aren't memories fun? My hubby and I both like just about any style of spice cake. :-)
Have a great day!
Our local grocery store, Acme, still makes the spanish bar cake, yum. I remember my parents buying it at the local A&P. Does anyone remember the vanilla flavoring that A&P sold? Mom swore by the stuff with her baking.
my Dad was a store manager for the A&P and i LOVE spanish bar cake as well as a pineapple kuchen that was also made under the Jane Parker label ....lots of good memories
It was called a Spanish ar Cake. My Mom has a recipe that is really close. ALSO, there is a grocery store that still sells something almost exactly like it. Shop and Save is the grocery store.
I remember that cake. It had little ridges in the frosting. Spice cake is still one of my favorites, but I use a 7 minute type frosting made with brown sugar. Yum!
