GIVING BACK TO THIS WONDERFUL COMMUNITY!

This year held a very special milestone for me. We held the areas LARGEST cake show and competition with over 130 cakes entered and displayed from 4 states! Celebrity judges from the Food Network and Flavor Right helped to judge. And the monies raised went to The East Tennessee Children’s Hospital.  The honorable Mayor Glenn Jacobs surprised me by a proclamation delcaring it the store as well as my day. What a humbling event, what an incredible honor, and what a great cause.
