Walking into Ashley’s Pastry Shop in Oakwood, you can feel the excitement. The bakery is decked out in orange and black, showing support for the home team. Theresa Hammons, the owner of Ashley’s, said they are selling all sorts of desserts for Bengals fans.
“The Cincinnati Bengals are just an awesome team right now and we need to show our support and have treats and goodies for our customers. And that’s what we’re about, we’re about bringing deliciousness into people’s homes,” Hammons said.
