On Our Radar // Complete Directory List of National Dessert Days

I always kick myself whenever I find out it’s National Cupcake Day on the actual day.  There are countless national dessert days that we would love to participate in, except to our disappointment we find out last minute..  I bet we are not alone on this ordeal, right?!  We do not ever want to miss out on National Donut Day or National White Chocolate Cheesecake Day again… and  we certainly do not want you to ever miss out on National Marzipan Day.  Let’s  be the first to know of a National Dessert Day instead of the last to know.

I don’t know what surprised us more;   National Gum Drop Day exists or there is not a National Cake Pop Day?!  Perhaps they should determine Bakerella’s birthday as National Cake Pop Day.  From our research, there is a wealth of National Dessert Days. October is National Dessert Month, but there are countless national dessert days throughout the entire year.   You can now enjoy our entire list as a reference!

XOXO, Melissa & Nancy

    This is great, any excuse to keep the mixer going and the creative juices flowing all year round!!! Only question is if these days are the same every year or just this year?? Maybe I get to celebrate these National days twice (one for the states and one for the uk)? wouldn’t that be fab!!!!
