Spring is just around the corner (considering that four weeks around the corner – thank you, Panxatoni Phil), and with warm weather and blooming flowers comes the wedding season. A long-standing local wedding tradition at your wedding is a cookie table – a table (or two) set with different types of cookies, chocolate and other sweets open to guests. If you’re in Pittsburgh bakeries, there’s all the goodies you need for your cookie table.
