Info About the Author (from the publisher):

“Each recipe in Vintage Cakes is a confectionary stroll down memory lane. After sifting through her treasure trove of cookbooks and recipe cards, master baker and author Julie Richardson selected the most inventive, surprising, and just plain delicious cakes she could find. The result is a delightful and delectable time capsule of American baking, with recipes spanning a century.

Each cake has been expertly tested and retooled using the best ingredients and most up-to-date techniques. With precise and careful guidance, Richardson guides home bakers—whether total beginners or seasoned cooks—toward picture-perfect meringues, extra-creamy frostings, and lighter-than-air chiffons.

A few of the dreamy cakes that await: a chocolatey Texas Sheet Cake as large and abundant as its namesake state, the boozy Not for Children Gingerbread Bundt cake, and the sublime Lovelight Chocolate Chiffon Cake with Chocolate Whipped Cream. With recipes to make Betty Crocker proud, these nostalgic and foolproof sweets rekindle our love affair with cakes.”

I love a good, old fashioned white birthday cake — with an ultra-fluffy buttercream. I want to go and make that right now. While donning a frilly apron.

Jessica September 11, 2012 at 3:16 pm

When I was a kid, I used to love those vanilla ice cream cakes with strawberry filling and vanilla frosting. They’d have to be refrigerated so when we ate them, they’d be so cold that you can barely tell which part is cake and which is frosting. Thinking of it still brings back memories of childhood. Yum!

arielle September 11, 2012 at 3:22 pm

judy September 11, 2012 at 3:36 pm

My favor cake is the German Chocolate Cake. The first time I ever have a slice of this wonderful cake, I was about 8 years old. I still remember the day. I am now *~?^&*# and have three grand children. All three of them love German Chocolate cake. Now I have a reason to make it more often.

Alice September 11, 2012 at 3:42 pm

Lauren Baker September 11, 2012 at 3:44 pm

Heather September 11, 2012 at 6:19 pm

Cake to me is extra special cuz if you only knew my Cake nightmares 8).
If you did a timeline of my BD cakes from infancy to my old age now what you would see are cakes baked for HOURS and never completely baked, to angel food cakes with so many holes it couldn’t stand up straight. That said my grandpa’s CRUMBY Banana cake, which never made it out of his brain onto paper will always be my favorite. That said Grandma’s Dafodil cake was always a wonderful surprise….

Reney September 11, 2012 at 9:12 pm

Really I have to choose 1? I used to like the simplicity of angel food cake, but I have stated that I would marry the man who made me some version of chocolate and bourbon (perhaps an Irish trifecta)

Kristen C September 12, 2012 at 12:20 am

I love German chocolate cake…even though there is no way coconut has anything to do with Germany…

Francesca September 12, 2012 at 1:03 am

My favorite cake? Ugh, that’s hard! I had a particularly delicious lemon poppyseed vegan cake at a bakery in NYC that I really liked, but I guess I’d ultimately go for a rich chocolate cake with ganache and chocolate mousse filling. Dreamy.

Faye September 12, 2012 at 1:33 am

Cheesecake!!!I love cheesecake so much, but I love any buttery cake .

Kay September 12, 2012 at 1:54 am

Oh my gosh, I’m stuck between choosing a favourite one out of the many much loved cakes on my list!! Hmm, a light, fluffy sponge cake with jam and cream?? Or maybe a Tiramisu sponge cake? Or a moist chocolate cake with smooth, rich, chocolate frosting? Or perhaps a rich, gooey, fudgey, chocolatey brownie….

Nancy September 12, 2012 at 3:32 am

Teresa September 12, 2012 at 6:56 am

Basic yellow two layer with vanilla cloudburst frosting.

Mary September 12, 2012 at 7:00 am

I saw this book at the store after hearing about it before it came out, and I couldn’t help but stand in the cookbook aisle and look through the whole thing. It’s a beautiful book, and the cakes tempt even me, a generally non-cake person.

My favorite cakes have fruit, a thin glaze, maybe a hint of lemon, and little fuss in their appearance.

Sara September 12, 2012 at 7:04 am

I realize this makes me sound oh so tacky, but my mom always made me strawberry cake from the box for my birthdays (originally I liked it because it’s pink) and it became a sort of tradition. She would hilariously decorate the outside with fresh strawberries and I thought it was the fanciest cake in the world!

Andrea Schmitz September 12, 2012 at 7:24 am

My favorite has to be homemade carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. Nothing tops it!

Chrystie September 12, 2012 at 9:36 am

The birthday cake I request every year from a little bakery in Queens, NY. White cake with cannoli cream filling and chocolate fudge frosting. Heaven.

I’m a Celiac, so for years cake was a tough one for me. Recently I’ve gotten quite good at converting recipes from glutenful to gluten-free, so it’s been less of a problem. However I really don’t know the first thing about these vintage cake recipes and would love love love to be able to make my favorites, which include the GORGEOUS chocolate chiffon pictured above, and tiramisu.

Maura September 12, 2012 at 12:19 pm

Julie September 12, 2012 at 12:24 pm

Carrot cake made with walnuts and crushed pineapple (and without raisins) + cream cheese frosting = Breakfast, lunch, AND dinner

Leslie Fuquinay Miller September 12, 2012 at 12:25 pm

WHAT?!?! You don’t like cake?!?! I wrote the book on it. My favorite is the sheet cake from the grocery store. Yeah, I suck. But if I have to pick a real homemade cake, it’s the Silver Palate’s carrot cake. And if I pick a cake someone else made homemade, it’s the peanut butter chocolate layer cake at Clementine in Baltimore.

I LOVE CAKE!

Shumaila September 12, 2012 at 12:25 pm

Jacki C September 12, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Ice Cream Cake!

Greatchalynne Hunsaker September 12, 2012 at 12:34 pm

My favorite cake is German chocolate with Marachino cherries on top. I like it hot out of the oven!

Kel September 12, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Chocolate, chocolate, chocolate!

Lee S. September 12, 2012 at 12:34 pm

Fruit cake. No, not the 1/2 ton bricks that are regifted every holiday season (although do like those, too), but a white cake with real fruit between the layers and gently pressed into a light frosting. Any kind of soft fruit will do … bananas, kiwis, cherries, strawberries, and etc. Toss on a few shaved almonds for good measure and texture.

Yvonne September 12, 2012 at 12:34 pm

I have a special place in my heart for carrot cake (with cream cheese frosting, of course!) but lately I’ve been loving cakes with fresh fruit, like yeasted German plum cake, or apple cake.

Patricia Crowley September 12, 2012 at 12:35 pm

Ice cream cake — chocolate cake and strawberry ice cream.

Ashleigh Richards September 12, 2012 at 12:41 pm

BLACK FOREST CAKE.
When I was little I required one for every birthday. My mother thinks it’s hilarious that while all the other kids wanted ice cream cakes, I demanded a cake loaded with rum. But I like it for the cherries…and I freeze it a little bit so they’re crunchy :).

Kali bliss September 12, 2012 at 12:41 pm

Strawberry shortcake!!! Yummmmmmm

Susan September 12, 2012 at 12:43 pm

Does cheesecake count?!

But the cake that has the most nostalgia with me is German chocolate. My mom’s favourite cake, and one that will always make me think of her.

Amber September 12, 2012 at 12:43 pm

I love homemade carrot cake with fresh grated ginger mixed in!

Jessica Lofton Drews September 12, 2012 at 12:49 pm

A Black Forest Cake all the way! I like to use some of the cherry juice when I bake items with cherries in it anyway and it makes it takes awesome! I am excited just to talk about cake :)

My husbands Grandmothers recipe for your basic pound cake. It reminds me of family reunions and cook outs.

Katie W. September 12, 2012 at 12:54 pm

My all time favorite cake is my Mum’s Banana Spice Cake. It is most and delicious with just the right balance of bananas, cinnamon, and cloves. And there is a yummy orange glaze which gets drizzled over the top. I always end up overeating with this cake, it is to die for!

Katie W. September 12, 2012 at 12:55 pm

Jessica September 12, 2012 at 12:56 pm

Katherine Di Mambro September 12, 2012 at 1:39 pm

I am not sure if it is my FAVORITE cake, or not, but white cake with fluffy frosting, showered in coconut, definitely brings back a lot of memories. Every Easter we make one just as simple (and yet just as utterly delightful) as the year before–I am sure many can remember the stand-up bunny cake made from one, simple 8″ round pan! We reserve that recipe (white cake, fluffy frosting, and coconut) for this design, and this design only!

Jenna September 12, 2012 at 1:42 pm

I love me some strawberry shortcake!

Ellen Yang September 12, 2012 at 1:50 pm

Cleveland Cassata cake!!!! white sponge cake filled with strawberries and custard!! :)

Kate September 12, 2012 at 1:51 pm

I have to say, strawberry cake with a lemon cream cheese icing sounds delicious right now. Especially if it was in bitesize form (aka mini cupcakes).

M. September 12, 2012 at 1:52 pm

My great grandmother’s pound cake!

Meg F. September 12, 2012 at 1:52 pm

Sarah R. September 12, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Black Forest Cake!!

Emily September 12, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Mmm…can’t beat a perfect piece of creamy cheesecake with a salty graham cracker crust!

JenMc September 12, 2012 at 1:58 pm

my favorite cake was my wedding cake: classic white, with a (real) white chocolate/whipped cream icing, layered with fresh berries – deeeeelish!

Lauren Bellamy September 12, 2012 at 1:58 pm

I love apricot pound cake. It’s especially good for dipping into fondue!

Sara September 12, 2012 at 2:01 pm

Red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting!

Shikha September 12, 2012 at 2:04 pm

Fruit cake. Not fruitcake.

Marie M September 12, 2012 at 2:05 pm

There’s something about a chocolate cake that feels like a treat – dark and moist please! If I’m making it myself, then there will be chocolate whipped cream filling and a dark chocolate ganache “seal”poured over the top and if it’s purchased, black forest is always a winner! (A little voice in my head is asking “what about brown sugar pound cake with maple glaze and choco chips?”) Sweet dilemmas :)

Deanna September 12, 2012 at 2:07 pm

My favorite is pound cake with fresh strawberries and cream!

Sally C. September 12, 2012 at 2:07 pm

sugarfairy September 12, 2012 at 3:21 pm

My favourite cake.. definitely cookies&cream cheesecake! And all white chocolate stuff.. :D

AshW September 12, 2012 at 3:26 pm

I love me some German Chocolate Cake, but my fiance doesn’t like coconut! :(

Jee Ahn September 12, 2012 at 3:32 pm

I used to hate carrot cake because it has “carrot” in the name…
As an adult I grew to love vegetables but still never gave carrot cake a fair try until our wedding when we had to choose the favors for our 4-tiered cake. My husband urged me to try a piece of carrot cake when we went in for cake tastings and it blew my mind.
I love carrot cake.

Lori September 12, 2012 at 3:38 pm

My favorite cake is carrot cake with cream cheese icing.

sophie September 12, 2012 at 5:02 pm

My favourite cake is my grandmother’s cake…it’s one that she makes for birthdays…sponge cake sandwiches together with cream and topped with jell-o and fruit. Polish grandmothers are the best <3

Chicca September 12, 2012 at 6:22 pm

I absolutely love my nana’s recipe for chocolate sour cream cake… without the chocolate! I am too old for birthday cakes, I think, but my mom still makes me one every year with homemade whipped cream and fresh strawberries in the middle. Yum!

I’ve always loved a simple yellow cake with chocolate frosting. When I was a kid my mother used to make it all the time. Simple and now I know affordable as well. Sometimes it would be in a Bundt cake or just sheet. Whichever way it was served…I loved it and still do. Oh and of course I loved licking the bowl :-)

I like any flavors of cake as long as the base is a sponge cake!

I die for an authentic Italian Cheesecake made with ricotta (no cream cheese) and a good liqueur baked into the mix.
