Around the holidays, Eli’s becomes a mixture of Santa’s Playland and Union Station. We have our operations in full gear, cakes going out for mail order, sales on our Dock, specialty desserts in our bakery and special cookie baking experiences in our decorating area. Here are photos from our first group of guest bakers on Saturday, December 10th.
