Ready – Set – Bake! This upcoming Wednesday, May 17 we will be celebrating a holiday that everyone can really sink their teeth into, it’s World Baking Day.
This unique food holiday was created by the folks at worldbakingday.com. Their intention was not only to show that spreading the joy of baking all over the world can be a fun way to create some awesome cakes, cookies, muffins and pies, but also that baking is a great way to spend quality time with family and friends.
Emma Kenny, a registered psychological therapist, seems to agree when she replied to the question “Why is baking so good for us?” Kenny states, “Baking is therapeutic….”What’s more baking is sensory and stimulates the senses; the weighing, mixing, smelling, and sharing with friends and family makes us feel good – so happy hormones are released that lead to elevated mood.” She also helped create “The World’s Happiest Cake Recipe” for World Baking Day.
Not really a baker? No need to worry, you don’t have to be a pastry chef in order to celebrate this holiday. With all of the short cuts and easy to make recipes there are to choose from you are sure to find something to please even the pickiest palate.
And at the end of the day, there is also your local bakery where you can choose to indulge in the most decadent baked delights to your hearts content.
Celebrating this delicious holiday is a piece of cake (pun intended), just gather your nearest and dearest, and your sweet treats and wait for those happy hormones to kick in!
