But how about pairing that sweet slice with something more interesting….
Wine, anyone?
We are thrilled to be welcoming Smith’s Sweets to Peaks of Otter Winery. This is the first collaboration of cake and wine with Smith’s Sweets and we couldn’t be more excited. Master baker, April Smith will be creating a special menu to match the lusciousness and intensity of Peaks of Otter Wines.
You will get to experience 6 scrumptious combinations such as our famous Blueberry Muffin wine along side of lemon cake with lavender butter cream drizzled with honey. Grandma’s Apple Pie wine fortified with apple brandy is heavenly with a slice of snicker-doodle cake with cinnamon cream cheese icing. YUM!

All Good Things Christmas Market

The first of its kind.. a market where KIDS are the vendors! 100% of everything offered is made and sold by kids! We’re giving our kids the chance to see what it’s like to run their own business, to get off their electronic devices and use their imaginations to create something others will love! Where kids have worked with parents and grandparents to craft the neatest things!

Also, “Kids Helping Kids” is the motto!
This is not only a business learning experience, but it’s one to teach love and compassion to our neighbors. The small vendor fee of $5 plus any other donations given will go to the non-profit organization, “Food For Kids”. “Food For Kids” is a weekend pack-a-sack program that feeds children from several of our area schools. Without these weekend meals, many children would go hungry.

Rain or shine, bring a friend and come out to enjoy what the kids have to offer! There will be food and drinks as well.
