    The text is in three sections: "Plain cakes', "Rich cakes' and "Miscellaneous good things'. OB dates the second edition [1886]. The author is named only in the reviews of her other books which follow page 52.% General comments: BMCat cites as destroyed "Cakes and other good things", [1886], pages xiv, 52. The entry does not note the edition number which suggests that the LB copy was the first edition and that the first and second editions were issued in the same year.
