Batter Up is a blog, a social experiment, and a movement to encourage people to slow down, make homemade food, and share it with family, friends, colleagues, and yes, even strangers. Starting on July 1, 2013, I committed to baking a cake every week for a year. Then, I then deliver those cakes to unsuspecting people who are doing something cake-worthy. The identities of the deserving cake recipients are a secret until the moment of delivery and I encourage people to chime in on Facebook and my blog to nominate people who deserve a cake. In doing so, we all get to learn a little more about our neighbors and who’s doing what in our community.
