Joy the Baker Picnic: Rooftop and Cupcakes

July 24, 2009

Rooftop Picnic

A few weeks ago I threw a little idea out into the world:  a Joy the Baker picnic.

Well… holy heck!  We’re doing it!

Joy the Baker is throwing a rooftop cupcake party smack dab in the middle of gorgeous downtown Los Angeles.  Consider it a room with a view (the view pictured above silly!)… and no roof and tons of cupcakes and sweet tea.

Sunday August 23rd from 2pm until 7pm.  Downtown Los Angeles.

This event is not a pot luck situation.  It’s more of a eat-all-the-Joy-the-Baker-cupcakes-you-can situation.

If you’d like to attend, send an email to joythebakerpicnic (at) gmail (dot) com

I’ll email you the fancypants invitation late next week.

Now… a girl can only make so may cupcakes.  In the event that I have to limit the guest list, invitations will go out on a first come, first serve basis.  Get your emails in!

Not in Los Angeles?  Don’t fret!  I have plans for you to play along wherever you live.  You might call it a virtual picnic!  Stay tuned for that!

I want to see your shining faces!

  • I love this. I’m originally from LA, now in Atlanta and so sad I won’t be there for this undoubtedly awesome event. I’ll be sure to check in virtually but do you think you can maybe overnight some cupcakes to me ;)

  • Ok, it’s in my calendar: Sunday 11 pm to Monday 4 pm :-)
    I guess I’ll be picknicking a little earlier than you… but it seems there’s a lot of European people here, so at least we’ll be celebrating on more or less the same time :-D

  • Damn. I can’t believe my little Los Angeles homebody butt won’t be here that weekend. I’ll be celebrating with you virtually in San Francisco! :)
