A Collection of Cakes


For this week’s vintage food picture, I decided to do a collection of cakes from different cookbooks throughout the years.  Somehow I thought this would be a little quicker than writing a few paragraphs about one picture.  I was wrong.  I think it actually took longer.  Silly little me……
