Unexpected Presents!

I don’t know about you, but I think that unexpected presents are the BEST kind of presents!  Coming up this Monday the 24th is our 4 year wedding anniversary!  T surprised me with this vintage cake carrier from a shop in Chicago called Jazze Junque.  I would never think to buy something like this for myself but it would be something that I would look at and swoon over when I saw it.  I always think of different things that I should be spending money on, so it was a very pleasant surprise to get this!  I love it!  I’ve been thinking of all sorts of things that I can bake just so that I can bring my treats places (or just store at home!)  This also got me thinking of other great vintage pieces in baking, so here are some of my favorites I found in my search.  I can’t wait to bake something!  Do you have any really great recipes from your grandmother or mother (or grandfather or father for that matter) that you would like to share?  I feel like something home-y and traditional needs to go under that gorgeous lid!
