About the Author
JULIE RICHARDSON is the owner and head baker of Baker & Spice, a small-batch bakery and café in Portland, Oregon. She is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, and the coauthor of Rustic Fruit Desserts. Her sweet tooth led her to open her first bakery, Good Earth, in Ketchum, Idaho. Upon moving to Portland, she fell in love with the farms and fruits of the Pacific Northwest and launched Baker & Spice from a stall at the farmers’ market in 1999. Julie spends most days baking cakes, croissants, and pies or teaching classes at SweetWares, her retail bakeware shop. When Julie is not baking, she can be found digging in her garden. She lives in Portland with her husband, Matt, and their many four-legged friends.See all Product Description

this delightful collection. There is simple language in
the directions,(historical storyline beginning each recipe,
photographs of your outcome,and who said jelly roll
variations are not around.They are lush & divine,
Honey Bee Cake,Daffidol cake, Italian Cream Cake,
Blitz Hazelnut torte, Real Raspberry in Buttercream icing,
Bourbon Cake, Almond Buttermilk Streamliner Cake,
topped with Lemon Custard Icing,& Lazy Dazy OatmealCake,
are a few of my favourites !
On the other, Richardson can't technically call these cakes "vintage" because she has manipulated the recipes so much ("retro" seems a more accurate adjective). Those looking for recipes straight from "the good old days" will find themselves disappointed by these newer versions. Also, the book feels rather thin for such a wide topic and not every recipe includes a photo.
Overall, "Vintage Cakes" contain several delicious-sounding and unusual cakes and provide a venue in which to discover lost classics. Just don't expect those classics in their original forms.
