If you look for an Ohio Proud marker in local groceries, you’ll find it’s all over the place in the salsa section.

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Treat to Try: Fresh Strawberry Cake from Golden Delight Bakery

It seems like Golden Delight Bakery on Bethel Road has just always flown a sign proclaiming that it’s the home of the Fresh Strawberry Cake. That’s certainly worth investigation, especially in warm-weather months. The bakery is located on a stretch that is known for fantastic ethnic eats.
