Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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, Buche de Noel, 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.

Review:

"In Julie Richardson's capable hands we are led back in time, down the cake walk. It takes a precise and meticulous baker to show us the way and here we are lucky to be guided by Julie's confident voice. These recipes are tested and true for today's bakers." Kim Boyce, author of Good to the Grain and owner of Bakeshop

Review:

"Bakers will invent reasons to whip up the treats in Vintage Cakes, coached by Julie Richardson's precise and enthusiastic directions." Shelf Awareness for Readers

Review:

"The cakes in this book somehow manage to seem fresh and new while simultaneously feeling familiar and immediately lovable....Whether you are considered to be The Cake Baker among your friends or just love a good dessert at the end of the day, there's a recipe or three in this book that will make you smile." The Kitchn

Synopsis:

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, Buche de Noel, written by a master baker and coauthor of Rustic Fruit Desserts.

Cakes are central to the way we celebrate, whether that celebration is a birthday, a wedding, or just a warm summer evening. With recipes for no-bake, roll, layer, and upside-down cakes from both the recent and more distant past, Vintage Cakes is a confectionary stroll down memory lane. Some of the delicious favorites to be rediscovered include: a frosted fairy cake (a hit at children's birthday parties), the picnic-ready lemon icebox cake with white chocolate cream, and a boozy eggnog bundt cake with brandy butter glaze. With Richardson's modern look at beloved baked goods, these 65 nostalgic and fool-proof recipes rekindle our love affair with cakes.

About the Author

Julie Richardson is the owner and head baker of Baker & Spice, a small-batch bakery and cafe in Portland, Oregon. She is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and the coauthor of Rustic Fruit Desserts. Her sweet tooth led her to open her first bakery, Good Earth, in Ketchum, Idaho. Upon moving to Portland, she fell in love with the farms and fruits of the Pacific Northwest and launched Baker & Spice from a stall at the farmers' market in 1999. Julie spends most days baking cakes, croissants, and pies or teaching classes at SweetWares, her retail bakeware shop. When Julie is not baking, she can be found digging in her garden. She lives in Portland with her husband, Matt, and their many four-legged friends.
