Starting a Baking Club

I am interested in starting a baking club in my area with the goal of sharing my interest with others of similar inclinations.

I have posted a notice on Craigslist to attract potential members and have received responses from interested parties.

What's next? Any ideas regarding structure, activities, venues, etc.?

I'm pretty sure I should have put more advance thinking into this!

  1. What a great idea! I wish I had been a part of something like that when I was younger. I used to be a fearless baker.

    I'd post your idea in the local CH forum. At least give that some thought. Does your local cooking store have a bulletin board, actual or virtual?

    Good luck! I imagine this will be a great experience.

    1. Remember the first rule of baking club....

      1. Good for you, sanylc.
        How large a club? How often will you meet? Where will you meet? Will the clubs have a theme? Do you show up with your own baking kit and bake together? Do you bake at home and then get together to discuss the recipe? Do you pick cookbooks or your own tried and true? Are you looking for beginners? Advanced bakers?

        Just off the top of my noggin.

            In this example the members figured out a unique club option.
