Ethical inspiration – vintage baking

19 May

I haven’t had a chance to get around to baking anything lately so to assuage my baking desires I decided to take a browse around Etsy for some vintage baking items.  I love the old-school charm of these items and would love to make little star-shaped cakes!  I have a “newish” copy of Mrs Beeton’s Household Management which is just brilliant.  It has recipes for making turtle soup(!) which apparently took a couple of days.  A very different world it was when the UK had colonies.

I am in need of a new sifter as I bought one from Habitats in a sale and I used it once before the pull thingy snapped!  Do I sound old if I say they don’t make things like they used to?
