Zodiac Cake

One of the grooviest recipe booklets in my collection is this colorfully illustrated Sara Lee guide to creating zodiac themed cakes for every horoscope sign under the stars. Not sure exactly when this was published, --60's or 70's maybe, and unfortunately there's no artistic credit listed either.

Man this is so neat!! I love how the people are so dreamy and surreal.

The cakes look pretty good too :)

Wow, nice look to this. Do you think the flowers are actual tissue paper collages or just shooting for that look? Either way it's really cool. I also like the bull art on the Taurus page. As a Scorpio, I'm surprised that Baked Alaska is their Halloween choice, though I'm not really complaining. But the facing page's Black Forest Cake seems witchier, somehow.

The thing I learned from this booklet is that Virgo is a reaper-- I somehow never knew that.

"How about more vintage Sara Lee treats?" you ask. Ok! Coming up!
