Contains 150 color photographs measuring around 3.5" x 4.5", without captions. Slightly bowed front board with some edgewear else near fine with fine photographs.A photo album kept by a woman who was involved in the Merrimack Valley Cake Club in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The album documents both her and her fellow club members' extensive creations over the years which range from artistic drawings on sheet cakes to sculpture made from cake, all photographed at cake shows and contests. The album opens with a photo of an impressive sculpture of the Mayo Brothers, the founders of the Mayo clinic. The collection is a combination of traditional cakes such as a beautiful tiered wedding cake, seen here, to scenes made in icing and cake including one of a man driving a horse drawn carriage. Many of the cakes show craftsmanship and delicate decorations which were clearly worked on with care. One cake shows a Civil War scene with iced figures of Southern belles, a soldier, and Abe Lincoln, while another is a full cake rendition of the Last Supper.A delicious collection of photographs detailing a community's baking artists. .
