Special Notes: This is a typical representation of a generic cake pan which began to appear in the 1800s and are still sold today. Fred Morrison and his then girlfriend (later wife) Lu Nay replaced their pop corn can lid with a cake pan from his mother's kitchen. Soon after, while tossing the pan at the beach, someone offered to by their pan for 25-cents. A lightbulb went off in Fred's head. He knew that cake pans could be bought for 5-cents. If he could trade nickles for quarter, then there was a business! Soon "Flying Cake Pans" became available at LA area beaches and parks. Later Fred turned his search for a "better-flying cake pan" into a design for the first plastic flying disc: the 1948 Flyin-Saucer.
