Lighting desserts on fire was a novelty dessert trend in the 60’s. That’s why you could always find Baked Alaska or Bananas Foster on the menu. Our delightful recipe makes eight, petite and individually portioned, Baked Alaskas. Full of strawberry and chocolate flavored cake, strawberry ice cream, and a light fluffy meringue, this elegant cake is truly a creamy, strawberry surprise in every slice!
Originally not frosted when first introduced in 1964, it was later determined that frosting could withstand the toaster. Here’s our homemade version of the classic, sugary and flaky, pastry treat you enjoyed at breakfast before school or even begged your parents to let you have as as a post dinner snack. Flavored with cake batter to make it taste like it’s a birthday celebration any day. Warning: Your kids may never want the store-bought version ever again after trying these tasty treats!
A fudgy take on the traditional Italian tri-colored gelato! Spumoni originated into the U.S. in the late 1870’s but became very popular in 1960 due to the rise of fudge, fondue, and other gelatin desserts. Many of us know the American version of Spumoni today as Neapolitan ice cream.
Make all of your retro-themed celebrations extra GROOVY with these bright and electric tie-dye cupcakes using liquid gel food coloring. Top with a delicious, creamy vanilla bean frosting to complete your playful and fun treat.
Gelatin was KING in the 60’s because of the popular brand we all know and still love today, Jell-O. A panna cotta is an Italian-style dessert made of gelatin and sweetened cream. The perfect ending to a romantic dinner at home.
Pineapple Upside-Down Cake was popular in the fifties, sixties and even seventies because canned pineapple was a pantry staple for most households. Looking for an alternative to the traditional dessert? These bright cupcakes, brimming with pineapple flavor in the cake and buttercream frosting will certainly do the trick!
