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.

Amazing book! I have tried the first five randomly chosen recipes, and the results were incredibly yummy so I just went and purchased my own copy! I think it is the best recipe book I ever had. Easy to mix recipes, great results. This is the best of her books, although I enjoyed her other books too. Highly recommended to everybody who likes baking or just contemplating it, it is the best book to start your baking adventures!
