3.0 out of 5 stars Great Flavors, but Lots of Kitchen Time, September 16, 2012
This review is from: Vintage Cakes: Timeless Recipes for Cupcakes, Flips, Rolls, Layer, Angel, Bundt, Chiffon, and Icebox Cakes for Today's Sweet Tooth (Hardcover)
Vintage Cakes is a unique cookbook that celebrates historic cake recipes that have vanished from popular circulation. While some of them take some time, there are recipes that are certainly worth the effort with flavors like Coffee Crunch Spiral, White Chocolate Rhubarb Downside-Up Cake, Old Vermont Burnt Sugar Cake with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting, and Shoo-Fly Cake, there is a little something for everyone. Learning about the history of each of the recipes is fun with some dating back to the late 1800s.
Vintage Cakes is packed with unique cake recipes and tantalizing pictures, but many of the recipes require a fair amount of time in the kitchen. While there is a "Hasty Cakes" chapter for recipes that are quicker to whip together, most of the recipes require quite a bit of work to put together. This is a fun book, but it may be a better fit for people who are looking for unique cakes or who have a knack for baking.
