Nothing says "holiday" like baked goods! In 1986, CMS created a Christmas party centerpiece, that paid tribute to all the delicious holiday baked goods of the season. After the party, the centerpiece was returned the next year, and every year, since then, at the Christmas party, The Bakery is raffled off to a different club member for the coming year. The winner takes ownership of The Bakery, adds something wonderful, and brings it back to the following year party to be raffled off again.
Additions have included, of course, a wide range of miniature baked goods, but also a lazy susan base, a window awning, snow, and even a proprietress who looks suspiciously like Mrs. Claus.
