What are vintage cakes called?

Hello, cake aficionados! Do you know those stunning, intricately designed cakes that seem to transport you to a different era back in time? Yep, those are vintage cakes, often referred to as heritage or retro cakes. Inspired by the French Rococo style of the 1700s, vintage cakes are all about frilly, overly-piped designs that were once the epitome of luxury and sophistication.

As time went on, different styles emerged like the "Lambeth" method, which featured strategic piping techniques, and the Wilton cake decorating style, popular in the 1950s to 1970s, known for its playful use of colours and poofier designs. The modern vintage cake is a delightful blend of these methods, taking you on a journey back in time with every bite.

What is a retro cake?

Retro cakes are also known as Vintage cakes and are a delightful celebration of the bygone eras, drawing inspiration from vintage cake designs that evolved. These cakes often feature piping techniques from the "Lambeth" method, as well as the more colourful and fun approach of the Wilton style. Retro cakes capture the essence of the past while putting a fresh, modern spin on traditional designs.
