Project: VICTORIAN CAKES by Caroline B. King

My first cake project for 2015 will be baking from one of my favorite (sadly out-of-print) books: Victorian Cakes by Caroline B. King. Published in 1941, the book is a memoir of Caroline's childhood in late-Victorian era Chicago, the details of which all focus on various cakes baked by her and her family. During the course of the project, I will be baking cakes from the book as well as delving into the story of Caroline and her family, both past and present. 

Coming up shortly, the first cake in the series: Vanity Cake!
