National Bake And Decorate Month

National Bake and Decorate Month is observed in October, and we can’t think of a finer month for it to be placed. That’s because at the end of this month is Halloween, which is always better with fine baked goods, and then the following month we begin the Christmas season.

This is the perfect month to get those baking chops in order so that you’ll be able to whip up cakes and cookies for the holidays like a professional. What are some of the cakes, cookies, and pies that people can whip up during this month? Well, the sky’s the limit. Just about anything can be created during this month. Maybe even a little something different for each day of October.

The History of National Bake and Decorate Month

When we first heard about this month, we were excited to do the research and find out who invented National Bake and Decorate Month. In our minds, it had to be a famous baker, cake maker, cupcake maker, or a company that creates baked goods.

Unfortunately, we were unable to locate who invented this month. It seems like it’s been lost to history. We also couldn’t find out when this month was created, although we do suspect that it’s been around for probably only a few years.

Tasty Facts About Baking

We wanted to include a few basic facts about baking that we think everyone will enjoy while they’re getting ready to observe National Bake and Decorate Month. The following bullet points cover some random trivia about baking, baking products, and anything that is even remotely related to the subject of baking.

  • Baking soda can be used not only for baking but also for tenderizing meat, polishing silver, and even taking the sting out of an insect bite.
  • Betty Crocker was created by the Washburn Crosby Company to give customers a more personalized experience when they asked questions about the company.
  • Placing baked goods in the refrigerator will make them go stale faster. The best bet is to cover them and leave them out to keep them fresh as long as possible.
