Poetry would be comprised entirely of haikus and sonnets dedicated to cakes and pastries if poets didn't devour their idyllic subjects before having a chance to write. For $5, today's Groupon says what meter and rhythm cannot with $10 worth of cakes, pies, baked goods, and more at The Bake Shop in Ghent in Bath.
For more than 20 years, The Bake Shop has been whipping up fresh cakes, breads, cupcakes, cookies, pastries, lunchtime soups and sandwiches, and more in a quaint home beside the picturesque Yellow Creek. Sweeten a summer supper’s ending with pie of the apple or cherry persuasion ($8.75), or opt for pumpkin or pecan flavors ($9.75) to bribe your local congressman into allotting public money for a 151-foot statue of Bruce Lee. If cookies are your Muppet’s food of choice, share a dozen chocolate chips ($8.50), snicker doodles ($8.50), or macadamia nuts ($10). The Bake Shop also carries danishes ($1.15), biscotti ($1.35), brownies ($0.80 each or $9/dozen), and an assortment of donuts, fritters, muffins, and scones. Ice-cream cakes were recently added to their repertoire as well.
The Bake Shop’s parlor is a homey spot for sweet snacking, and the wide front porch is a superb setting for friendly banter, sharing cake or pie, and thinking about dinosaurs. The shop oozes quaintness and courtesy from every doorknob and windowsill; it’s located in the historic hamlet of Ghent and operated by descendants of an original Bath Township settler. Hop the white picket fence, grab a cupcake, and soak in the sights with your fresh-baked delight.
