If you’ve been lucky enough to receive a comment from Paula “The Vanilla Bean Baker” on your blog, what I’m about to tell you should not come as a surprise. Paula’s words are as sweet as the wonderful treats she creates on Vanilla Bean Baker. Just like her words, Paula’s cookies are carefully-crafted, lovely and worthy of seconds.
A beautifully-decorated cookie is a wonderful sight. Paula has turned school buses, a map of the United States and even perfectly manicured hands into edible pieces of art. She has even created cookies that are totally Canadian-worthy, eh?
Paula also gives on a daily basis as she launched Frosting for the Cause on January 1, 2011. For 365 days in a row, Paula has and will continue to organize a post from a cookie and cupcake decorators and/or food bloggers across Canada and the United States. The guest posts include a story of how someone’s life has been affected by Cancer and a homemade cupcake, cookie or sweet treat recipe. Each person who volunteers to write a post also agrees to donate a batch of their goodies to their local Women’s Hospice, in addition to making a donation to either the Canadian or American Cancer Society.
Paula’s kindness is what we should all strive for in our everyday lives. As food bloggers, we have the privilege to enjoy a warm and friendly community and it is people like The Vanilla Bean Baker that makes it a reality.
