Vintage Cakes: Timeless Recipes for Cupcakes, Flips, Rolls, Layer, Angel, Bundt, Chiffon, and Icebox Cakes for Today's Sweet Tooth by Julie Richardson



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. Angel food cakes and chiffon cakes both grew in popularity in the 1930s, once American households had ovens with reliable temperatures and electric mixers that could whip egg whites with ease. Both of these appliances were quite important to the success of cakes dependent on fluffy egg whites and air!

Each recipe in Vintage Cakes is a confectionary stroll down memory lane

A whole book of cakes that your grandma might have made! Hard to resist the fabulous photos and total disregard for gluten, dairy or all things cooked. That being said, the sculptural edibles are hard to resist. Have made 3 so far and each was a magical, caloric wonder! sigh! A great comprehensive dessert cookbook that is easy to understand and use. The beautiful photography tries to re-create yet update vintage photographs, exactly how the she approaches the book's contents. Who knew that cupcakes derived from little cakes baked into teacups? Or the marital practice of Appalachian wedding guests each bringing a layer of cake to participate in creating the wedding cake? Or Boston cream pie's namesake from it's being baked in a pie pan? There are many fascinating historical tidbits in this book, which makes it worth perusing on it's own, let alone for the wonderful recipes.

I was lucky enough to receive Vintage Cakes for Christmas, and have tried several recipes already. The directions are very easy to follow and complete with delicious results! Have had a lot of fun making the cakes, and the stories with each cake is super, am looking forward to making all the recipes in the book. 3 people found this helpful.

Author : Julie Richardson. 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. Each recipe in Vintage Cakes is a confectionary stroll down memory lane. 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.

Other highlights: The cakes in this book somehow manage to seem fresh and new while simultaneously feeling familiar and immediately lovable. Maybe it’s the fact that every single one has a vintage recipe as its base, though refined and updated from their hand-scrawled origins by Julie Richardson. She bridges the gap between our grandmother’s recipes and our modern tastes and baked expectations. I could honestly see myself making every single recipe in this book. Images: Emma Christensen).

Just want to add my five stars to all the others. I have made a number of the recipes from this book and they have been really good. This is probably not the right book for a first time tentative baker, but those with a little experience and and a sense of adventure will very much enjoy it. This book is about the flavor and quality of the product, not about how it looks. There are clear instructions on how to get complete every step of the cake baking process, and then how to assemble them. The decorating is left to your imagination (just look at all the beautiful customer photos to confirm), and that makes it even more fun. I have not baked every cake in the book yet, but every one I have has received multiple praises. My most recent was the double-dip caramel cake (don't have the name right). I only had two cake pans and cutting them in thirds proved to be a little steep for my skill set...let's just say there was no question the cake was homemade. However, I received a response from one experienced cake eater that it was one of the best cakes they had ever eaten. Anyway, I look forward to the challenge (and so does my family) of having to bake this cake a few more times to get my assembling technique ironed out. This is my new go to cake book and if you are actually interested enough that you are reading this review, then you should make it yours too. Thank you Julie Richardson for sharing these great recipes as the East Coaster may have never been able to experience your wonderful cakes otherwise. Lastly, anyone who thinks as highly of this book as I do should look at First Prize Pies (by Allison Kave) as a complementary pie baking book. Her pies are not necessarily vintage, but very creative, from scratch and fun and challenging in the same way these cakes are.

This cookbook is by far the best cookbook I've purchased in ages! I actually originally checked it out from our local library, and decided to purchase it after exhausting my renewals and racking up a week's worth of overdue fines. Since purchasing this book I've made four different cakes for different events, and all of them have been a hit. I personally have enjoyed trying the various recipes calling for Bundt pans, and I really loved being able to make a from scratch version of the cherry chip cake my grandma baked my mom for her birthdays growing up. I've included a photo of that one. The only con that I can even come up with is that I've adapted her buttercream recipes with my own buttercream base, as I do not prefer buttercreams made with egg whites. However, that is completely unimportant, as the wealth of cake recipes and the stories provided with them more than make this book a worthwhile purchase. Everyone with an interest in baking should purchase this book.

I purchased this as a gift for Mother's Day. My mom likes to bake and really enjoys making things from scratch. Given that she is a "Baby Boomer", I felt she would really enjoy the recipes in here. They sound delicious! They also look more intermediate, especially for beginners like me who prefer more simplistic recipes. There are several pictures in this book, just not one for every recipe. After seeing the older cookbooks my Mom has in her cabinet, it seems that is pretty standard anyway for early editions. The quality of this hardcover is brand new. I am pleased with this purchase and look forward to gifting it soon.

I’m not sure what’s in this book? But mother actually shed tears when describing cakes she remembered, while thumbing through this book. As she was thanking me for this gift. So I’ve ordered another copy, for myself. I’ve got to see this. And I hope one day to transfer a true love of baking to my grands, as my grandmothers & mother did to me.

Store-bought cake mixes are now almost 4 ounces smaller -- remember when they used to be 18.25 ounces?? And all the shortcut cakes we used to make with the store bought mixes and other ingredients added? Well, those cakes aren't turning out the way they used to. Solution? Make your OWN cake mix, chocolate, white, and yellow, for those faster desserts you need quickly-- and then spend some quality time and start making cakes that we loved as children and grand hildren! The taste and texture is worth the extra time!!

Unfortunately, I moved and couldn't take much with me, so I gave all my cookbooks to a friend, along with the rest of my baking stuff. I find reading baking books to be very relaxing. Now that I am settled somewhere for awhile and have the time, I am going to start ordering these books again. I would get them back from my friend but she lives 1/2 way across the U.S., so cheaper for me to build my library up again. This book will be at the top of my list.

I bake cake and eat cake because I want a delicious SWEET treat. These recipes, specifically the frosting, have hardly any sugar. Therefore, it’s like eating a fat bomb that is sorely lacking in flavor. I was expecting cakes like my grandmother made that were sweet, simple, and delicious. I can’t imagine why this book receives so many 5 star reviews. I was debating between this and Martha Stewart Cakes. I should have known that Martha wouldn’t let me down.
I borrowed a bunch of cake books from the library and this is the one I wanted to own, to have my collection of splatters for years to come. I only made one cake (banana) and it was fabulous! The book itself is so beautiful it's out on my buffet. I read cookbooks for fun and this one is great for that. Made better that the recipe was so good I trust the others will be too. I do wish there were more pictures. I'm an advanced baker so I don't "need" them but the ones that are there are so nice I just want more.

Another review said they were upset it wasn't the actual original vintage recipes and I agreed until I tried a recipe. Although knowing the changes or maybe a snapshot of the original would have added to the vintage-ness I'm still ok with it not being there.

I also love that most layer cakes make 3 layers so its only one recipe for a beautifully tall cake.
