Retro Cakes! Lady Baltimore, Coca-Cola, German Chocolate, and more.
Where's carrot cake???

And has anyone eaten mystery cake (the one with tomato soup in it)? Is it good?

I LOVE 7-Up cake.

That's what I'd request my mom make for my birthday when I was a kid. That, or red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and pecans.

I have a weakness for Red Velvet, too. WE usually have one at Christmas. For birthdays, we had something we have named "Traditional Birthday Cake," only because no one knows what it was really called. It's a very chocolatey cake with a white sugary icing that gets almost crystallized. Over the icing you drizzle melted bitter chocolate and let it harden. OMG.

My standard request for my birthdays (guess what today is, btw) was checkerboard cake.

This. This is what will motivate me to get the rest of the kitchen clean.

Also - snickers cake!

Oh yay! Lady Baltimore.

(for my birthdays, before the age of 14, I always wanted angel food cake with whipped cream with chocolate chips stuck in it for my birthday.

Cool. I also want to know how that tomato soup cake ends up.

I thought it wasm terrible the one time my mum made it, but I hate tomato juice and it tasted very strongly like tomato juice. Wasn't much of a mystery!

Cool, Miko! I wish we could mark favorites over here.

My specialty when it was my turn to cook was the meat loaf la mode (with scoops of mashed potato) from the 70's Betty Crocker kid's cookbook...which unlike today's, didn't emphasize processed ingredients.

Yum, there are some lovely cakes there Miko - I've already been ordered to make 7 Up cake and the Lady Baltimore looks delicious. I think I'm going to be baking on the weekend!

Brujita, was that 70s Betty Crocker kids' cookbook spiral bound? And did it feature a bunch of pencil-drawn kids, one named Alpha? And was there a cake that looked like a castle?
