For foodies (aren’t we all foodies?)

“Vintage Cakes”:

In the last few years, vintage cakes have made a comeback, with an uptake during the pandemic. Montreal baker Lauren McGowan makes these ornate, colourful cakes in her studio kitchen, which she calls the Violet Bakehouse. They're the product of her creativity but also her research into cakes, colours, and styles from the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. We talk with her about the art of retro baking.
