Lawrenceville Bakery Standing Up Against Racism with Delicious Treat
A popular bakery in the heart of Lawrenceville is standing up against racism, according to one of their Instagram posts, by doing what they do best...baking the most amazing cookies around.
The Gingered Peach (one of my favorite places in the world) is a black-owned bakery on Gordon Avenue, right off of Main Street, in my quaint hometown. They just reopened their doors this week (to the delight of everyone in town) after being forced to close due to the coronavirus health crisis, and immediately got to work baking amazing treats and fighting racism.
Until tomorrow (Saturday, June 20th), 100% of the proceeds from the sale of their fabulously gooey Blackout cookie will go to I Am Trenton Community Foundation. An easy and delicious way to show your support.
The mission of the I am Trenton Community Foundation is, "Making Trenton even better through community engagement, building pride in our city, and community-focused giving," according to their website. The non-profit group encourages all residents to get involved in making the capital city a great place to live and work. Check out everything they do here.
I stopped by The Gingered Peach yesterday, after seeing the post below, to get a few cookies and was happy to see that I grabbed the last two, but, don't worry, they were baking more. They sold 100 cookies in an hour. That made me smile. I asked how long they were doing this, and they told me until Saturday, so don't miss out. You can visit (don't forget your face mask), call, or email your order. The sale is a part of a nationwide bake sale this week for #bakersagainstracism.
What is a Blackout cookie? It's made with jet black cocoa, almonds, marshmallows, dark chocolate, and white chocolate chips. You may have had one in the Blackout Cookie Concrete at Shake Shack on Route 1. Yum, yum, yum. You'll love them.
The Gingered Peach is located at 2 Gordon Avenue in Lawrenceville.
