We Asked Food World All-Stars to Make Our Shop a Birthday Cake

August  6, 2016

Three is a big dealβ€”out of the twos, well beyond toddling. And yes, three is a little bit different when you're talking about a shop rather than a human child, but we think it's going to be a heck of a great year for our own Food52 Shop. Three! Our Shop, already home to thousands of products and hundreds makers, is turning three!

To celebrate, we asked all-starsβ€”Carey Nershi of Reclaiming Provincial, Molly Yeh of My Name Is Yeh, and the duo behind Spoon Fork Bacon, and Ellen Bennett of Hedley & Bennettβ€”to share their favorite birthday cakes with us so that we (and you!) can make them at home. No plain yellow cake here (though we're certainly not knocking it); instead, think icebox cake and almondy-blueberry cake and towering, whipped cream clouds...

Happy 3rd birthday, Shop! We can't wait to see what next year has in store. Now make a wish!

What's your classic birthday cake? Describe it in the comments!
