Is there a cake and pastry community in the mold of The Fresh Loaf for bread bakers?

    pulled up a few pastry-focused blogs & websites for you - don't know if they'll be useful:

      The sites above are mostly private blogs or owned by chefs... I am almost sure there is nothing for cakes and pastry as there is for bread with thefreshloaf, which is a great community and forum for avid breadmakers. fyi, the closest thing for cakes and pastry I have seen is The Daring Bakers.

      Thank you for your help!

        well then maybe it's about time *someone* started a Fresh Loaf-esque site for pastry bakers ;)

      The pastry & baking board on egullet seems to have a fair number of professionals. Lots of great information on cakes, chocolates & confections, ice cream, etc.
