Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Pies are easy, ice-cream is cool and delicious, and cookies are beloved by children and Santa, but cake is the undisputed queen of dessert world, and in Let’s Bake a Cake, the fourth in our popular series of vintage cookbooks, we celebrate this truth. 
 
Benjamin Darling once again turns to his extensive collection of vintage recipe pamphlets to seek out cake recipes and images that evoke cakes throughout the early and mid-twentieth century in all their glory. Recipes include basics like devil’s food cake and caramel cake, holiday-themed delights such as Candy Cane Cake and Easter Bunny Cake, and recipes formerly lost to time such as graham-cracker cake, peach upside-down cake and chocaroon cake. They are all accompanied by a wealth of carefully selected and beautiful vintage images. Frosting, filling and topping recipes, decorating and baking tips, and cake lore round out the treasure trove of vintage cake knowledge and visual beauty that is Let’s Bake a Cake.
