Continuing with the theme of “Back to School” for our cookbook giveaway, today we’re giving away a sweet little History lesson with Vintage Cakes, a cookbook of recipes for cakes from recent and sometimes distant past…

How to Enter this Cookbook Giveaway

  1. Leave a comment with your favorite kind of cake! Basic Chocolate Birthday Cake? Airy Angel Food Cake? Pineapple Upside Down Cake?!?! Don’t worry if you don’t eat cake (like me), just make something up. It doesn’t matter what you say, as this is a random drawing, but it does matter that you do comment with something.
  2. Make sure to enter your email address in the box provided so we can contact you
  3. Share this giveaway post with your friends on facebook and twitter! (not required, but we’d love the help!)

You have until Thursday September13, 2012 at 5 PM PST to comment. Everyone is welcome to comment to enter, but we can only ship this stuff in the U.S. (So if you’re outside the US and win, you just need to provide us with a US mailing address to send!)

Good luck!

(And by the way, in case anyone is wondering, even though “I don’t always eat cake,” when I do, it’s always rich chocolate layer cake with chocolate ganache filling and super thick chocolate frosting!)

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.”
