fondant map, map cupcakes by Betsy

Another OpenStreetMap birthday celebration has come and gone. Another tableful of map-themed confections has been consumed, or spirited-off in doggy bags. More happy mappers have found their way home after another day of mapping and chatting. And all is right with the world.

Betsy raised the confection bar this year by rendering a Toronto neighbourhood in fondant and using that for toppers on mini-cupcakes. They were awesome. Thanks so much!

Mappers love treats. It is known.

The OpenStreetMap Ninth Birthday celebration is being held today at various locations around the globe. These are just a few of the treats waiting for the Toronto mappers.

Yes. This is a highway interchange diorama, in fondant. Yes, an OpenStreetMap logo. Yes. A highway shield for Autoroute 10 in Qu├ębec. Naturally. :-)

delicious snacks from Japan

OpenStreetMap contributor ikiya sent some delicious Japanese snacks for Toronto mappers to enjoy at a recent Mappy Hour. He also sent State of the Map sticker from SotM - Tokyo.

Thank you, ikiya!

Ikiya is a driving force in the Japanese OpenStreetMap community and has often posted photos of delicous Map Cakes at OpenStreetMap Birthday party celebrations. I've admired the artistry and cullinary skills he displays.
