Item Details

Random House, Inc.
A charming collection of updated recipes for both classic and forgotten cakes, from a timeless yellow birthday cake with chocolate buttercream frosting, to the new holiday standard, Gingerbread Icebox Cake with Mascarpone Mousse, 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.

The pictures and stories were lovely, but these cakes are too time consuming and ask for unusual ingredients that someone doesn't normally have on hand. The only recipe that looked good was the Kentucky Bourbon Cake. Other than that, this cookbook isn't for mainstream bakers.

To produce "Vintage Cakes," professional baker and author Julie Richardson spent months baking vintage recipes, updating ingredients and methodology to revive formulae from a time when a cupcake was literally a cake from a cup. On one hand, this book extends far beyond the classic Victoria Sponge; it revitalizes forgotten delicacies such as Texas Sheet cake and Ozark Pudding Cake and makes them accessible to the modern baker.

On the other, Richardson can't technically call these cakes "vintage" because she has manipulated the recipes so much ("retro" seems a more accurate adjective). Those looking for recipes straight from "the good old days" will find themselves disappointed by these newer versions. Also, the book feels rather thin for such a wide topic and not every recipe includes a photo.

Overall, "Vintage Cakes" contain several delicious-sounding and unusual cakes and provide a venue in which to discover lost classics. Just don't expect those classics in their original forms.
