PEEKSKILL, N.Y. --- Talk about striking it rich -- as in lots of sugar and frosting -- and scoring a home run.
Peekskill's Homestyle Desserts Bakery was the dessert maven behind a host of sweet concoctions -- think a four-tier cake, shortbread cookies, and cupcakes -- in honor of the retiring of Derek Jeter's No. 2 jersey. The longtime Yankee retired from the team in 2014 but the actual retirement of his jersey was on Sunday, May 14.
The local shop, which does a lot of Yankees-related events, was commissioned to design the sweets and in fact, was also behind Mariano Rivera's retirement cake.
