Sweet Melissa Sundays

Archive for September 2009

UPDATE:  OK, so I was wrong.  You do want to be exclusive.  I’m not going to be dictator, so I will close the group again and make that clear on the homepage.   On the flip side – to be fair – if you are no longer interested in participating – or just are too busy (I get that!) – let me know so I can give your spot to someone who wants it.  Thanks for being open and honest all of ya – and for loving our group. 



Hi all.  Soooo, things have been HECTIC – we are in escrow on our first home!  Anyhow, wanted to let you all know that our lovely group was mentioned in this Washtington Post Article.  And, our very own AMAZING Wendy from Pink Stripes got much deserving accolades. 

As can be imagined, we have some new interest in our group.  I am finding it hard to say no to people who go out and buy the book and want to participate.  I know I said I would keep the group small and manageable – but I feel bad about leaving people out of all the fun.  And I think that can still be achieved by updating the membership with people that appear to have dropped out.  So, I am going to lift the cap for now – let me know if you strongly disagree – and then I will send the email requests your way (wink wink) – sorry I am a softie.

And, finally, special thanks to Karen of Karen’s Cookies Cakes & More for helping me with the admin duties while my life has been CRAZY.  Sorry I missed out on last week, wedding in Portland, but will be back in full force this weekend.  Miss you all!


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!
