Cookies complement a glass of milk the way a fine cheese complements a glass of wine or a Hot Pocket complements a glass of bitter tears. Dine on delectable dairy sponges with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of baked goods, sandwiches, and more at The Lovin' Oven Bakery in Lancaster.
The Lovin' Oven Bakery has crafted creative bakery concoctions for more than 30 years. Just as the sun is freshly baked each morning, the Historic Towne Square shop pulls its chocolate-chip, oatmeal raisin, and cherry wink cookies from the oven daily ($6.95+/dozen). Cakes available in italian cream, red velvet, cherry nut, chocolate mousse torte, and more ($25+) enhance any celebration or event, while cupcakes ($0.99 each) fit perfectly into cup holders during competitive drag races.

The Lovin' Oven Bakery
Even as the sun begins to glint on the horizon, Suzanne Maxwell is hard at work in The Lovin' Oven Bakery, the Historic Towne Square shop in which she has whipped up old-fashioned cakes and baked treats for more than 30 years. She specializes in wedding and groom's gourmet cakes, of which rum, banana nut, and italian cream are a few of the more than 15 flavors. She bakes cookies throughout the day to ensure they stay as gooey and soft as a Jell-O pillow, and she can customize cookie orders of any size, shape, and design. Suzanne also lovingly preps pastries including brownies, cream horns, and éclairs, and prepares pies in flavors such as key lime and mincemeat.
The Lovin' Oven Bakery also serves lunch, featuring chicken salad atop all-butter croissants and paired with chicken 'n' dumplings or beans and corn bread. Suzanne also crafts special-order cakes for all occasions, such as birthdays, weddings, and baby-hedgehog adoptions.
