Thank You!

'Some sweets coming down on the night shift'.  Thanks to everyone who contributed to this weeks bake!!  Another week of delicious looking goods.  Last night we delivered to night shift health care workers at a few long term senior's homes here in Hamilton.  We've been focusing on the teams at these residences because they're particularly under stress.  Up until last night, we were doing daytime deliveries.  Not sure if they were getting to any night shift workers.  Last night they did.

Next week will be our last week of deliveries in Hamilton before our move back to Port Hope.  Please DM me if you can contribute.  We'd like to go out with a baking bang!  Thanks very much.  Stay safe.  Be well.  And bake good.  We'll bake it through this!
