Brooklyn Public Library


Cookies, and Cakes, and Pies, Oh My!

Hey No-Shushers, M-Gran here. So the holiday season is upon us and like most of you I love the holiday season. Yes, I love searching frantically for the perfect gift for my nearest and dearest, but nothing says holiday season like baked goods.

Cancel your gym membership, and put Weight Watchers on hold. If you’re like me you skip past the gifts and family kisses and head straight for the dessert table. Every year in mid-November, I begin to mentally prepare myself for the holidays (and my post-holiday diet). By late November, I embark on the journey of overindulgence in all my favorites like pumpkin pie, sweet potato pie, Black Cake, and new to the arsenal, Lord’s Red Velvet Cake.

If you missed Sweet Melissa’s visit to Brooklyn Public Library, you can still satisfy your holiday sweet tooth by visiting her shop located right here in Brooklyn or try this recipe at home. Season's Eatings!

Try Lord's Bakery at the Flatbush Junction near Brooklyn College. They have excellent Red Velvet Cake and wonderful coffee
