Angel Food Bakery in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood is hosting author and toy historian, Todd Coopee, for a special book signing event and celebration of the release of his new book, Light Bulb Baking: A History of the Easy-Bake® Oven.
In the The Globe and Mail article Why the Easy-Bake Oven Continues to Fascinate Us, the author ponders the staying power and lasting appeal of the Easy-Bake Oven. While reflecting on his own childhood memories of the perennially popular toy, the article takes a look at the history and borrows from Light Bulb Baking: A History of the Easy-Bake Oven.
There were laughs, trifle, and a lesson on how to open the oven door (hint… you can’t). Listen to Light Bulb Baking author Todd Coopee talk about the Easy-Bake Oven with Alan Neal on CBC Ottawa’s All In A Day.
