House of Bread in Anchorage, Alaska recently celebrated its tenth anniversary with a big celebration on Saturday, February 1. As part of the celebration, the bakery unveiled a gigantic treat for guests to enjoy.
A 100-pound cinnamon roll was baked and served up that day. It contained 60 pounds of flour, 30 pounds of brown sugar, 10 pounds of cinnamon, and 10 pounds of butter
State Representative Lance Pruitt had the honors of cutting the first slice, and following that, cinnamon rolls were sold for 10 cents each that morning.
A portion of all proceeds from the store’s anniversary was donated to the Downtown Hope Center, a soup kitchen and shelter in Anchorage.
“They are a great organization that helps low income and homeless women. They have a bakery and a culinary training institute. So we’re helping support them,” owner Meschelle Kolb told KTUU-TV. “We have not had the opportunity to hire any of their graduates yet, but we look forward to doing that in the future.”
