The Top Ten Western Kentucky/Tri-State Area Bakeries
I decided to let this go for a while after posting the poll the first week of January. That's because there are more bakeries in the area than I realized, and that's a GREAT thing. Who doesn't like fresh baked goods?
And according to your votes--and there were nearly 2,500 of them--these bakeries are your ten favorites, but they certainly weren't the only ones that got votes. So, we'll start with shout-outs to great bakeries who were shown some love because of their amazing delicacies but just didn't crack the top ten.
A tip of the chef's hat to Golden Glaze, Hometown Donuts, Niko's Bakery & Cafe, Koehler's, Great Harvest Bread Company, Tonya's Tasty Treats, Donut Bank, Riley Bakery, Southern Secrets, The Cup Cakery, Sweet Temptations by Victoria, Sammy Jean's Cafe & Catering, Behind the Times, Krystal's Cake Creations, McKee Bakery, and Baker's Dozen.

Thank you for all the votes, and I'm sure these bakers would thank each of you individually if they could. In the meantime, it's the dinner hour as I wrap this up; I'm thinking two cupcakes with a side of Bundt cake and, I don't know, a cookie and a donut for dessert.
