VINTAGE CAKES

VINTAGE CAKES,Tremendously Good Cakes for Sharing and Giving by Jane Brocket.

This is the first domestic cake and baking book to combine cake history, fabulous recipes and vintage styling, in settings that include colourful china, vintage tablecloths and tableware, cake tins and paper cases, and inspiring cake stands.

There are six tempting chapters: Everyday Cakes, Cake-tin Cakes, Little Cakes, Elegant Cakes, Fancies & Frivolities and Celebrations, with cakes ranging from traditional afternoon tea fare such as Scones and Fruit Loaf to the decadent American Red Velvet Cake, and the Fruit-filled Plum Streusal Cake to delightfully colourful slices of Battenberg. There truly is a cake to suit every occasion and baking need.

The book begins with a brief introduction to the history of the cake, the joys of sharing cakes and an in-depth look at the essential baking methods needed for perfect cake-making. The cake recipes are each introduced with delightful vignettes of history and provenance. Practice makes perfect and Vintage Cakes provides everything you need to whet your appetite.

Whether you are preparing a sublime afternoon tea, an outdoor garden party or a picnic by the sea, Vintage Cakes provides the know-how and the inspiration for reassuringly old-fashioned treats that fill your kitchen with warmth and good smells.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
