Peach cake makes news easier to swallow
With all the bad news and the divisive politics, it was wonderful to read Jacques Kelly’s reminiscences of peach cake in
The Baltimore Sun (“Retro: Peach cake is a Baltimore delicacy, but what makes it so special?” July 28). I so remember going to Silber’s Bakery with my mother to buy a slab of peach cake when I was a child during those hot and steamy August days. What a memory!
The other “good news” item that stood out in the paper was the photo of the annual Assateague to Chincoteague wild pony swim, handled by the “saltwater cowboys.” I hope The Sun does more of a story on this annual event that is featured in the children’s book, “Misty of Chincoteague.”
