The Bake Fest 2022: An Epic Virtual Baking Event

Darren Fox (@bakesthatinspire) and Stefani Pollack (@cupcakeproject) are entrepreneurs & social influencers with a deep love for the baking community. They created The Bake Fest as place for us all to learn together. They built it with lots of networking opportunities so we have a space to get to know each other & exchange tips so that they can grow together.

The Bake Fest is an online event that will be held from 9:30 AM to 9:00 PM in your local time zone (America/New_York) on 21 May 2022 and 22 May 2022. It's realized that based on your time zone you may not be able to attend the entire event. Your ticket includes event recordings available for one year after the event so that you’ll be able to catch up on anything you miss.
