In a time when people are stuck at home without their friends and extended family, we need to still be able to celebrate! Children are unable to invite friends over on their birthdays, brides to be are missing their bridal showers, and families can no longer get together on Sunday afternoons. But the couple who own Tiny Cakes are offering delivery, take out and curbside service on the MOST delicious cupcakes and treats in the region! This place must survive the pandemic! They are struggling like so many small businesses right now and they need our help! If you’ve never had a Knotty Pine cupcake, you are missing out on something special. Go for a drive with your spouse and kids (it’s one of the few outings still allowed right now) and head on over to Tiny Cakes in Cambridge. You won’t be disappointed! 😉

They are a sponsor for our Cambridge Redhawks, they sponsor a local dart league, and more importantly, they just unveiled a special beer to boost charitable donations to a local foundation, Portraits of Honour. A portion of all sales goes back into OUR community. It’s time for their efforts to be rewarded. It’s time for the support of this local business, as they have put so much effort for our community.
