For a few weeks now I’ve been mulling over ideas for this week’s special 70th Independence Day column. Naturally, I kept coming back to desserts – tall, colorful cakes decorated with Israeli symbols – or fun, simple cakes full of fruit and chocolate.

But nothing really got me very excited. So I went back in my mind to the 1970s and 1980s and thought about all the cakes and dishes that were popular in cafés and at weddings in those days.
