If you're like me, you've probably visited many food blogs and thought to yourself how delicious the treats looked! Even though there's no shortage of baked goods in my house, sometimes I just wish I could try those baked by others. Sarah, Margaret and I were chatting on Twitter last night and decided it would be a blast to get a chance to do just that: to share our baked goods with others and have an opportunity to try theirs. We're calling the idea Secret Baker - sort of a play on Secret Santa.
Here's everything you need to know if you'd like to jump in (and we hope you will!):
Sarah of Blue Ridge Baker will be hosting the first round. If you would like to get a surprise package in the mail (and send one in exchange, though not necessarily to the same person)
email the following information to email@example.com:
- Your name
- Your shipping address
- Your email address
- Any food allergies, dietary restrictions, food aversions, etc...
The last day to join for round 1 is Monday, October 26th.
We will all ship out on Monday, November 2nd. It is important to ship out on this date so we can be sure the goodies will arrive before the weekend. The theme we have chosen for the first round is fall - easy, and so many possibilities!
All of the bakees will be chosen at random, and you will be contacted via email on October 27th with the name, address and dietary details of the person you'll be baking for.
