Harris still has cake decorating touch at age 91

An Elmcroft resident got a special “treat” Tuesday afternoon at Sweet Sprinkles Bakery in Mount Washington.

Ninety-one year old Mary Harris got to relive a favorite hobby of hers—decorating cakes.

“I haven’t done this for 40 years,” she said. “I used to work for a T-shirt factory and made cakes for girls and their daughters.”

Harris said her favorite cakes to make are wedding cakes, “I’m not sure how they’re making wedding cakes now,” she said.
