This is my collection of
Daring Bakers challenges
completed since April 2008.
Click on pictures to see more info.

The Daring Bakers are
an international group
of bakers, who bake the
same recipe together,
each month.

Members take turns to
challenge their fellow bakers.

Everyone posts his results
the 27th of the month on his blog.
Click here for my blog.

Beside the Daring Bakers
there are also Daring Cooks.
Their shared website
is the Daring Kitchen
.
There are 9.000 members,
but not all of them post
each month.

participating bakers, or
here
for the cooks.
