The Third Annual Michigan Birthday Bake-Off

Michigan Birthday Bakeoff - The Awesome Mitten

It’s that time of year again – our great state is about to celebrate her 178th birthday on January 26th, 2015. Every year for the past few years, we’ve celebrated the holiday by hosting a Michigan Birthday Bake-Off encouraging both amateurs and professionals to show their #MittenLove through a culinary creation. The tradition continues this year with the third annual Michigan Birthday Bake-Off. Learn more about the professional division, and the rules have been announced for our amateur division.

The Awesome Mitten was born when I moved back to Michigan from Nashville, TN in September 2010. Almost immediately, I became frustrated. I couldn’t figure out why there weren’t more Michigan residents singing our states praises! I was so irritated, I wrote a Letter to the Editor. Three weeks later, I had started a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and a landing page for the website, determined to do something to make Michigan residents aware of all the cool things going on in their own state.
