5.0 out of 5 stars Preserving recipes and memories!, December 9, 2011
This review is from: Cake Ladies: Celebrating a Southern Tradition (Paperback)
The author of Cake Ladies, Jodi Rhoden, is actually a cake lady herself and she decided to write a book to honor the tradition of the beloved cake ladies, who are common in the South. Although discount store bakeries and boxed mixes resulted in a lessening of the cake lady popularity, luckily they are again regaining their well-deserved notoriety. And given that love is focal point of desire to bake for others, this resurgence in popularity is a wonderful thing.

Cake Ladies starts with an explanation of the anatomy of a cake wtih the ingredients used and why they are used. There is a feature on each cake lady telling about her background and why she makes cakes, plus their expert tips. And, of course, there are delicious recipes, like Vanilla Almond Pound Cake, Caramel Cake and Hummingbird Cake, and the classic Southern Ten-Layer Chocolate Cake, all beautifully presented along with pictures of the ladies working in their own kitchens. Reading about these lovely women, I was struck with the importance of preserving these types of things, and I appreciate what a wonderful job of that the author did with this book.
