The Snow Day Bake-Off

November 28th, 2010

I love snow and I’ve been wistfully following the flurries around the UK on the news, Twitter, blogs and Facebook, wondering if it will head my way. I have a section in my new cookbook listing things to do on snow days and I’m looking forward to doing them when I get my own snow day. Until then, I thought we could have a little food blogging event and you can send me pictures of the snow where you are so I get to see it, along with the lovely bakes you make. What do you think; sound like fun?

To enter, all you have to do is bake something yummy and take a photo of the snow or frost and then blog about it, with a link back to this post. It looks like the winter chill is set to last so let’s set a deadline of 12th December and then I’ll do a round-up of all the snowy photos and bakes. I can’t wait to see them! You can also post on Twitter using the tags #SnowDayBakeOff and #uksnow. Have fun!

      Oh, dear… I will have to wait for the Easter Bake since I am in Rome and we have no snow – not usually. It snowed for 20 minutes last winter and the whole province came to a halt!

      It was a steamy, wet, rainy 16C, yesterday!

      Ciao, and as always, thank you so much for the invite. Your last cooking event (in the bag) really inspired me so I look forward to the next one!

    18. Julia Says:

      Hey guys. Wow, this is SO exciting! Don’t worry if you don’t have snow, you can use a picture of snow or frost from a past winter.

      Hi Julia!

      Here we go! Just moved to the UK from sunny Sydney- so this is my first snow. It’s kind of tripping me out…

      But have discovered it’s an excellent excuse to stay inside and eat…

      Great idea Julia, I could take photos of cakes in the snow all day x

    23. Jason @ (y)our food choices Says:

      We don’t have any snow in SF but I will be making some homemade Christmas cookies in the next day or two. Can I just include a rainy city scene instead? Here’s a recent post of ours for s’mores, just in case the snow becomes too much and you need some summer baking project.

    24. Julia Says:

      Jason – absolutely, rainy days are just as good as snow days for baking!

    25. Sanchita Says:

      Hi Julia,

      I love your idea and here is my entry for your event. Hope you like it 🙂


    26. Scott at Real Epicurean Says:

      Wow – this looks like being one popular event!

      Perhaps everyone is stuck at home baking instead of going to work?
