Joy Wilson is well known for her daily dabbles in butter and sugar as her blogging alter ego, Joy the Baker. A California girl now living in New Orleans, Joy is a 100% taste buds taught baker obsessed with butter, sugar, cream, and dark chocolate. Since 2008, Joy has shared her indulgent and comforting yet approachable recipes through her popular blog joythebaker.com, inspiring home cooks of all ages every step of the way.
Joy is also a three-time cookbook author, editor-in-chief of Joy the Baker magazine, creator of baking mixes for Williams Sonoma, 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. You can keep up with joy on Instagram @joythebaker and take a class with her @thebakehousenola. On any given day she can be found with a bag of cookies and a pound of butter in her purse.
