Teacake Bake Shop has ongoing weekly specials, with Happy Hour every Tuesday. Cupcakes are half price between 4 and 6pm and frosting shots are $1. It’s cool to be smart on Wednesdays, when students get a free baked good for an A on an assignment. And if you donate a children’s book on Thursday, you’ll also get a free baked good. Books will be donated to The Children’s Book Project of Grand Lake Neighborhood Center.
