Joy the Baker Picnic

Oooooh Yea!  I’ve got a lot to be excited about!  Come on down for picnic time!

Don’t forget to send your virtual picnic pictures into joythebakerpicnic (at) gmail (dot) com …. Ok!?

You’ll also want to check back often today to see all sorts of picnic photos and updates.

Aaaand one more thing!

Don’t forget the live Twitcam broadcast at 4:30.  All you have to do is follow me on Twitter!

Update 1.40pm PST: I think we are all set.  Also, I want to post a couple of virtual picnic updates.  First, look at this photo of Ella from Western Australia


She said:

Unfortunately its winter in this hemisphere, so our picnic was a gloomy indoor affair, brightened only by the glorious CUPCAKE SUN!

Also heard from Julia from the Dozen Flours she had to work this week on her very first wedding cake but said:

(I) was channeling your picnic too because the reception had a very sweet Italian picnic theme.

Thanks for joining in.   More soon…

Update 3.01pm PST: Ok.  This is officially happening.

See you at 4:30…..
