What is World Baking Day?
The third Sunday of every May people around the globe celebrate World Baking Day. On this day, people from all walks of life and all skill levels are encouraged to bake something delicious and share it with others. While World Baking Day celebrates the joy of baking (and the joy of eating baked goods!), it’s also a chance to bake something new, teach kids to bake, and give a homemade gift to a friend or neighbor.
Cakes, cookies, and quick breads are some of the most beginner-friendly options, while old pros may want to take it up a notch with layered or filled pastries or homemade artisan breads. Decorating these homemade goodies with icings, frostings, or glazes and sprinkling with colorful toppings can be almost as much fun as eating them. Pics are shared each year on social media at #WorldBakingDay.
