Joy Wilson is well known for her daily dabbles in butter and sugar as her blogging alter ego, Joy the Baker.

Joy is also a three-time cookbook author, editor-in-chief of Joy the Baker magazine, and baking instructor. Through it all, Joy proves baking is not about all the latest gadgets and high-tech gizmos; it’s about stepping into the kitchen with a monster sweet tooth and coaxing something beautiful out of the oven.”

“Six years ago, Joy moved from Los Angeles to New Orleans where she transformed her home into a kitchen studio called The Bakehouse where she tests recipes and holds weekly in-person and virtual baking workshops for students from around the country.”

Joy has won numerous awards for her online work including Savuer’s Best Baking Blog and being named one of the Top 50 Food Blogs by The London Times.
