    Last year we missed some important baking occasions. We should put these in our personal calendars so it doesn’t happen again. 🙂

    Dawn – There’s probably more than one professional baking magazine. Chocolatier and two other magazines morphed into with a physical magazine. I’m still getting it as a result of my Chocolatier subscription which I can hardly wait to run out.

    My son the mathematician informs me that Pie Day is March 14. Pi =3.14=March 14. In Europe, where they put the day first, then the month, Pie Day is 22/7, or July 22.

    Never knew there were that many dessert days. Thank you for posting it, I’ll be adding them to my calendar. I might not be able to make them on the day but will have to plan ahead and maybe eat them on the celebrated day. Thank you!

    This is wonderful! Now I have some cute holidays/reasons to send goodies to my nieces and nephews. 🙂 I’ll be a bit late for Shortbread Day but I can send it with the Fig Newtons. 🙂
