Taking a picture of baked goods can prove a tricky task—not only do you want your sugar-based treasures to look delicious, but you also want the image to convey all the feels. You know—the warm and fuzzy ones.
Because baking a pie, a cake, cookies, brownies, biscotti, madeleines, a cake, or even scones (yes, scones) can spark joy in the hearts of many, can inspire others to bake a batch of baguettes, and can sometimes even turn into a dream come true. That's why, as part of Arrowhead Mills' Bake it Forward program, we asked our community to show us what they were mixing and kneading and whipping this past week. We hope these photos will motivate you to get into the kitchen and bake something special—for yourself or your loved ones—this weekend:

We love baby cakes, especially when they are layered with rhubarb curd and cream.

Did we mention we love lemon bars?
Remember the lemon curd I made earlier this week? I turned it into ice cream and then made ice cream sandwiches.

When life gives you lemons, turn them into lemon curd. Then turn that lemon curd into ice cream and stuff it between cookies.

In this situation, plates are not necessary.
