Closing Up Shop

Posted by - Rena 

Happy June! 

After much thought I have decided it's time for Have the Cake to close up shop. It's been so wonderful getting to spend these past few years reading through your baking adventures. This blog was started in 2009 with 4 of my close girlfriends in the hopes of getting us to bake more and share our experiences. The blog grew as we added more and more bakers every year. Thanks so much for sharing your recipes, successes and failures. It was always a fun read! 

The blog will stay up so you can always revisit the posts. 

Much love and happy baking!

Aw darn Rena! It's been fun having a challenge, but I have to admit to having been a total slacker about participating sometimes. Thanks for starting and seeing HTC through for so long. It's been great and I'll miss it!

I enjoyed participating in HTC and reading others baking experience. I am little sad to have this come to an end :(

I've been a huge slacker for years, but I'm still sad to see it end. I will never forget my coconut cake adventure! Thank you so much for all of the time and effort you put into this! It is/was a great idea and it always makes me smile! xoxoxox

Thanks for keeping it up and running all these years, Rena! I've been a slacker, too, but had so much fun with the early challenges (even if most of my baked goods were fails).
