ODESSA, Texas (YourBasin) – What started as baking for family gatherings turned into baking for the community.
Sweet Treats Haven owner Vera Olivas has turned her love for baking into giving back to front line workers during the pandemic, such as taking a treat to a local doctor’s clinic.
“This is for the benefit of the person you decide to give the treat to. This is to make them feel better, to make them feel appreciated. It’s not for my benefit,” says Olivas.
Today, morning anchor Amanda Mason joins the taste testing trying various bundt cakes, chocolate-covered strawberries, and chocolate covered pretzels.
Olivas is set to scale back on bake though as she begins school at Odessa College in the fall. She says she’ll take orders in advance but will not do last minute orders.
