Baking for Success

One local baker is finishing up the final touches of her latest creations for the 25th Annual Carr Center Cake Auction.

Owner Beth Hayes of "In Good Taste Bakery" on Putnam Avenue said she made 14 cakes for it this year. She said some range from really simple designs to others that are very intricate.

"Sometimes they come in and know exactly what they want and that’s great and other times they’re really not sure and we work together to figure it out and come up with something really cool," she said.

Hayes said she enjoys seeing all of the cake submissions and how creative other bakers get. She said most importantly it’s about being able to give back to the community.

"It becomes less about me and more about them once I hand it over so it’s a lot of fun to see their reactions, but passed that, I like the fact that it becomes theirs," said the Owner.

A public viewing of all the cakes for the People’s Choice Award will be held on Wednesday from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Colony Square Mall. The actual auction will take place on Thursday and Friday and be broadcast live on AM 1240 from 8:15 to 6 p.m. It will also be streamed on our website.
