Erica is a part of the WOBM Hometown Crew here at WOBM.  She loves baking and has a dream to have a bakery one day and we thought it would be fun if every Friday she brings in her homemade goodness for all of us to share.  Everything Erica makes is homemade.  She is a true cutie-pie and love when she comes in with sweet treats for us!
