Today’s Throwback Thursday theme is baking and I really thought we would have more entries! First we have a photo from Heather and the rest are photos from our collection.

From Heather H – Kirsten is busy baking cupcakes from American Girl baking items of 2007 and 2010.

From Nonna – This is Jenny’s Baking Set from OG which no one else seemed to feature so I thought you might still like it.

In 2007, AG released the Sweet Treats Bakery and Sweet Treats Accessories. We got the Bakery – which matches Grace’s Pastry Cart – but not the accessories set.

This is the Sweet Treats Bakery set up for Valentine’s a few years ago in Natalie’s old room.

Gwen and Maplelea Saila are doing some baking in this scene too – although they have added items from The Queen’s Treasures, too. Saila is wearing the apron that was a store exclusive years ago.

In 2009 I visited the Chicago store and they used the Sweet Treats Bakery Set in a window display. It is so nice to see Felicity and Elizabeth in the display, too.

I hope you enjoyed seeing a few photos from the DollDiaries vault.
