Sweet Melissa Sundays

Archive for May 2009

Soooo sorry, totally forgot about this since I am in vacation in Hawaii, thanks for the reminder Jamie.  I’ll catch up with ya’ll and other admin tasks when I get back on Tuesday.  Thanks, Lorelei

Hi all.  So after some deliberation and discussion with other group members, I have decided to cap the group membership at 50 members.  This is for several reasons.  While I really do like the idea of openness and inclusion, I think it is great to be able to go around and read and comment on the fellow member posts.  That is really not possible with super large groups like TWD.  I also think that it is really fun to be the host – and limiting the group to 50 would allow us all to pick 2 times during this book adventure.  If there is some interest after we reach 50 members and close the group, we could always invite people along to guest blog with us for that week or something.  Or reconsider the cap.  But, I think there is something to be said about a “tight knit” group of serious bakers that can help us get the full experience out of this project. 

I hope this is OK with everyone.  I’d be happy to hear your feedback on the issue.  If you know of people that are interested, let them know we’ll be shutting our doors soon. 

P.s. I have been in contact with THE Melissa Murphy, and I hope to have some exciting news to share soon.

Let er’ rip!  A Mother’s Day Special.

This blog is a baking group using The Sweet Melissa Baking Book. We are in no way affiliated with Melissa Murphy or her bakery Sweet Melissa Patisserie. We're just fans of the cookbook and bakery!
