Over recent years, many people in and around Pike County have come to depend on the ladies of Mount Moriah Baptist Church for their home baked holiday cakes.

So, there will be a rush for their favorite cakes when the Mount Moriah Baptist Church’s Annual Holiday Bake Sale gets under way at 9 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 13, at the Piggly Wiggly on North Three Notch Street in Troy.

Mary Mitchell, one of the church lady bakers, said the ladies will have nearly 100 cakes including layer cakes and pound cakes.

The layer cakes will range in price from $25 to $30 and will include red velvet, chocolate, white chocolate, German chocolate, Italian cream, butternut, Lady Baltimore, coconut, Lane, carrot, lemon and orange sherbet cakes.

The pound cakes will be $20 and include butternut, chocolate, cream cheese, old fashioned, Italian cream and caramel.

“That’s just a sampling of the cakes that we’ll have,” Mitchell said. “There will be more favorite recipe cakes for sale on Saturday.”

The ladies of Mount Moriah are involved year round in fundraising projects to benefit the church’s building fund.

“The funds that we raise from the Holiday Bake Sale will be used to reduce the debt for the adjoining property that the church has purchased,” Mitchell said.

“The property allows us space for expansion when the time comes. We appreciate the support of our bake sale and encourage everyone to come by the Piggly Wiggly Saturday and get a cake for the holidays. All of the cakes can be frozen for up to six months. So, whether you want a cake for Sunday dinner or for Thanksgiving or Christmas, it will be just like fresh baked.”
