I don’t think I’ve met anyone who has truly not enjoyed baking or eating cakes and other baked goods. The smell of a freshly baked cake as it comes out of the oven, is, for lack of other words, euphoric.
While this is a default site, I hope you college foodies interested in baking consider taking a trip to Connecticut in the Winter to enter the CT Cake Competition (which, by the way, I did not know we had until this year. As a communication studies major, their lack of publicity did not impress me).
Open to all levels of baking artistry, the event also includes classes and demonstrations. I’ll try to make space in my schedule to go next year, and I hope you will too.
