Book Description

20 Sep 2012
A charming collection of updated recipes for both classic and forgotten cakes, from a timeless yellow birthday cake with chocolate buttercream frosting, to the Christmas standard, Bûche de Noël, written by a master baker and coauthor of Rustic Fruit Desserts.

  Make every occasion—the annual bake sale, a birthday party, or even a simple Sunday supper—a celebration with this charming collection of more than 50 remastered classics.
 
Each recipe in Vintage Cakes is a confectionary stroll down memory lane. After sifting through her treasure trove of cookbooks and recipe cards, master baker and author Julie Richardson selected the most inventive, surprising, and just plain delicious cakes she could find. The result is a delightful and delectable time capsule of American baking, with recipes spanning a century.
Each cake has been expertly tested and retooled using the best ingredients and most up-to-date techniques. With precise and careful guidance, Richardson guides home bakers—whether total beginners or seasoned cooks—toward picture-perfect meringues, extra-creamy frostings, and lighter-than-air chiffons.
A few of the dreamy cakes that await: a chocolatey Texas Sheet Cake as large and abundant as its namesake state, the boozy Not for Children Gingerbread Bundt cake, and the sublime Lovelight Chocolate Chiffon Cake with Chocolate Whipped Cream. With recipes to make Betty Crocker proud, these nostalgic and foolproof sweets rekindle our love affair with cakes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!!! 13 Dec 2012
Format:Hardcover
Beautiful recipes, lovely photographs, fantastic tips. I'm from the UK so lots of these Vintage American recipes were new to me which was so interesting as was reading about the history of the recipes and how the author had updated them. Plus every review I've made has been a success including the Goober cake and the Italian Cream cake. Absolutely recommended!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! 21 May 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
A really easy to follow book, that makes amazingly delicious cakes. My favourite so far is the Maple and Pecan, although I cut the frosting by half, but it was still great. Off to buy more baking books with chiffon cake recipes in :-)

2.0 out of 5 stars A bit dissapointing 31 Dec 2012
By Tesei
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The recipes sound fantastic, very creative and tasty but I was quite disspointed because there are very few pictures and I personally love baking books with pictures of what the recipe should look like.
