About This Item

Part of the "Craft Series", this slim volume provides valuable advice for commercial cake production, as it was in the 1940's. Includes chapters on Small Things that Constitute the Whole, Block and Round Cakes, Special Lines, Pound and Small Cakes, Season Cakes an Seasonal Display, Costings and Policy.

95 pages, 21 cm square. Published by Maclaren & Sons and printed by The Garden City Press at Letchworth, Herts., England.

In very good condition given it age, with signs of wear to cover and tanning to pages. Title on cover and spine is faded. Binding is tight. Annotation inside back cover in blue ink, but otherwise free from markings.

This is an undated volume, but presumably was published about 1940.

About Beth's Books

An avid collector over many years, I am now parting with some of my beloved books. Most of my collection is over 50 years old. My particular interests include cookery, poetry, philosophy, natural therapies, and Scottish literature.


Some terminology that may be used in this description includes:

The outer portion of a book which covers the actual binding. The spine usually faces outward when a book is placed on a shelf....[more]
Used to mean that the binding of a book has not been overly loosened by frequent use.
