Pittsburgh PA, June 1 — Bethel Bakery is turning out an all-star roster of Penguins-inspired goods, just in time for the team’s return to Pittsburgh for game 3 of the Stanley Cup finals. Fans of the beloved South Hills retail institution are in frenzy over the items that feature the bakery’s signature batters, icing and flavors, creatively embellished with hockey-inspired, black and gold designs.

“We’re in overtime keeping up with the incredible demand for our Penguins-enhanced merchandise, but we’re having a blast combining our love of the team and making the finest baked goods found in the city,” says John Walsh, owner of the 53-year-old bakery.
