October 22, 2012Vintage Wedding Cakes From Maid of Scandinavia
I know I usually keep vintage food posts on the Mid-Century Menu, but these wedding cakes were so fantastic, I decided to make an exception for them.
I recently had a good experience on eBay (for once) and managed to strike up a conversation with a seller who had just bought a TON of issues of Maid of Scandinavia’s Mail Box News. If you aren’t familiar with this publication and you like to bake, you should totally spring for some. The older issues are full of great pictures of cakes, tons of tips for cake decorating and the most outstanding recipes ever.
In any case, this seller bought a bunch of these little magazines at an estate sale and didn’t feel like listing all of them. Consequently, I was able to talk her in to a fantastic deal for both of us. She would sell me the 79 issues she had for about 30 cents each. I got a good deal and she didn’t have to list them all. Win-win.
And when they came and I got to see the special wedding cake issues, it turned into even more of a win.
These pictures are from the May and June 1969 issues of Mail Box News. I absolutely ADORE them!
What do you think, guys??
