If you’re out and about in St. Paul and looking for something to do today, I highly recommend coming to the Union Depot for the 3rd Annual Holiday Bake Sale. Featuring the top bakeries in the Twin Cities, you can stop in and sample them all (ahem, I am). Groundswell, the Buttered Tin, Common Roots, St Croix Chocolates, Hans Bakery, A Cupcake Social… etc, come out with ugly sweater cookies, Santa cake pops, sprinkled bundt cakes, t-rex cookies, macaroons, snowflake sugar cookies, handmade marshmallows, Babe the blue ox cutouts and even mini pecan pies to add an extra sweet tradition to the holiday season. They also have baking and cooking demonstrations, entertainment and a sneak peak at the Lowertown Pop – a pop up market coming in the spring. I have come to this every single year and have never been disappointed.
