Virtual Cake Day for Home Cooking denizens everywhere?

TorontoJo recently posted the results of the Toronto group's Cake Day results -- and it looks as if much fun was had by all.
How about we designate a day, say a Saturday, and have a virtual Cake Day?
We won't be able to share the results, but we will be able to share photos and self-critiques/comments from those who do try the cakes.
What say you?

      1. If it can be a cake we've made in the past, I'm in.

          It doesn't have to be this Saturday...what's best for all?

          1. re: buttertart

            November? It's too hot to do much baking!

              1. re: roxlet

                Seriously, it's unlikely our oven will be on again until Mid-October.....

              2. re: buttertart

                How about early September? Also, how about we do it next year around the same time as Toronto Jo so we can feel the love?

                1. re: TrishUntrapped

                  Early Sept means I'd have a higher likelihood of participating.

                  1. re: TrishUntrapped

                    I'm all for a fall cake day! I have no problem with more than one cake day in a year, because it's CAKE. :o)

                      You really should have the title of Cake Lady, based on your love of cakes!

                        I prefer to think of myself as the cake pusher. ;)

                1. home from 11-day road trip. need sleep. do laundry. bake cake for Virtual Cake Day.

                  1. Depending on the day, I'm in. Although I'm in Toronto, so I could technically do the non-virtual Cake Day. :)

                    1. should it not be on bastille day?

                      "Let them eat cake!"

                      1. I would love to participate as long as my icing job will not be critiqued! September to October is a perfect time to make a cake....Summer would be great to make some kind of chilled confection.

                        1. I have plenty of cool weather in the near future. How about an ongoing thread about our cake creations?

                          1. Perhaps too formal, but what about a quarterly cake day, where there is a theme -- Bundt, cakes with fruit, chocolate, spiced, chiffon, boozed-based -- something vague enough to leave plenty of choices, but just enough in common to tie everything loosely together. You can call it The Cakers Dozen

                              I like the theme idea, and the name. It would be great to have it seasonal.

                                1. re: Ruthie789

                                  I like this idea! It gives all of us more opportunity to participate. The themes would be so fun, too!

                              1. Love it. Vote for October. Perfect time to start baking.
