Wednesday, May 6th | 7 p.m.
We're more than a little thrilled to be hosting Cheryl and Griffith Day, the couple who founded (and were married in) Back in the Day Bakery in Savannah, Georgia, in 2002. These self-taught bakers are the authors of the New York Times bestseller The Back in the Day Bakery Cookbook: More than 100 Recipes from the Best Little Bakery in the South. Their new bestselling cookbook is called Back in the Day Bakery Made with Love.
And to make this event even more delicious, the Days will be in conversation with Angie Dudley, author of Cake Pops and creator of Bakerella.com!
This should be a deliciously fun event!
