NEW EPISODES COMING IN 2019!

The Cake Historian is a podcast exploring history, culture, and identity through the lens of cake. Much more than just the ingredients it is made from, cake is a symbol of celebration, a bringer of joy or pain. Cakes show up in literature, music, art, and on film. It is a food of love and loathing. And even, occasionally, a vehicle for murder.

This is not your usual food podcast.

Hosted by Jessica Reed, Cake Historian and author of The Baker’s Appendix
