Here’s a sweet deal for Valentine’s Day: For every heart-shaped ice-cream cake purchased at The Towne Scoop, the management will donate a portion to the two Verona families whose homes at 40 Kenwood Avenue and 6 Woodland Avenue were burned in pre-Christmas fires.
“We want to help them in some way,” says store manager Lorrie LaBruno. “It’s a tough situation, to have to leave your house during the holidays, with kids in school. They’ll be out of their homes for some time.”
Heart cakes are $14 with free lettering; $16 with a photo of your choice replicated on top in edible icing. Cakes are half chocolate and half vanilla with cookie crunch in between; custom flavors cost an additional $2 per layer. Cakes can be purchased at the store during winter hours, which are Fridays from 5 to 9 p.m., Saturdays from 2 to 9 p.m., and Sundays from 2 to 8 p.m. To order a cake in advance, visit Towne Scoop’s Web site or call the store at 973-85S-COOP (857-2667). Photos can be e-mailed to the Web site. Orders should be placed by February 8 if possible.
