Happy National Homemade Bread Day!

You may be surprised to learn, as I was, that November 17th is National Homemade Bread Day. Bread has been a staple of our diets for almost 6000 years!

Some great ways to celebrate National Homemade Bread Day:

  • Make some bread!
  • Visit one of Denver's many wonderful bakeries! Buffalo Doughboy is one of my personal favorites. What's yours?
  • Feed bread to ducks in the park!
  • Learn about breads from all over the world! Naan, pita, baguettes, and fry bread are all delicious types of bread!

This groom's cake, created by ABC Cake Shop & Bakery in New Mexico, is a 3D replica of the Denver Public Library. It is iced completely in buttercream with airbrushing for the windows. I stumbled across it on Twitter and couldn't believe my eyes!
