If you are or know a baker, here is a wonderful book to add to your library titled... The Master Baker and His Work by K. Cammille Den Dooven. This hard cover book was originally published in 1928 and THIS copy of the 6th printing from 1949. (See all the pictures!)
The covers are navy blue cloth with a gold stamped title--showing some wear. The book has 150 pages plus index. The cover shows just a little wear at the edges and tips from use and re-shelving. INSIDE the front and back inside covers (both front and back) has the name of the original owner--small. Otherwise, the pages are at least 98% free of any marks, stains or writing. A nice copy for its age!
Sprinkled with black and white photos showing cake decorations, samples of baked goods, sugar basket, table displays.
Filled with techniques and recipes for the commercial baker covering French, Viennese, Danish pastries, cake decoration, pound, sponge, angel cakes, jelly rolls, pies and fillings, icings and toppings, sweet doughs, breads and rolls. This edition starts off with a recipe for a Silver Anniversary cake weighing 2500 pounds: "First a table was built, 6 x 5 feet.mounted on ball-bearing anti-friction caster wheels.."
