Fenwick Bakery in Parkville is all about the Ravens these days. It's been churning out its popular mini football cakes for weeks and will continue to do so right up until Super Bowl Sunday.
The small pound cakes are $1.25 each and $15 a dozen. "We will continue to take orders until the last minute," says co-owner Michael Meckel.
Mike is as proud of the Ravens as he is of the bakery, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this month. He's worked there for 33 years and purchased the bakery in 1994 with another longtime employee, Claudette Wilson.
The business partners bought the shop from Walter Uebersax, whose family founded the bakery, then known as Uebersax Bakery, in 1913.
The bakery is a "love story," they say, that began when Ernest and Alvena Uebersox married and started the shop on what is now Washington Boulevard. Eventually, the bakery was renamed and re-located to Harford Road, where it continues to thrive.
Team work. It works. Go Ravens!
