The makers of Baltimore's famous Berger Cookies were closer Monday to reopening their Cherry Hill bakery, a spokesman said. The Baltimore City Health Department closed the bakery Jan. 31 for operating without a city-issued food service license. The Health Department has no concerns about food safety after inspecting the facility earlier this month, said spokeswoman Tiffany Thomas Smith. Meanwhile, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has an ongoing, “routine” investigation into the bakery after a scheduled inspection in January, said George A. Strait, an agency spokesman, on Monday.

Baltimore's spending panel agreed Wednesday to give H&S Bakery $200,000 to move its Harbor East distribution center as part of a deal officials say will help keep the business in the city. The Board of Estimates approved the agreement without discussion. Moving the distribution center also stands to financially benefit its owner, John Paterakis, who can use the prime real estate for another purpose. The Harbor East land is eligible for millions of dollars in tax breaks. Comptroller Joan M. Pratt cast the only dissenting vote on the five-member board.

The Rawlings-Blake administration is set to give $200,000 to help H&S Bakery move its Harbor East distribution center to an industrial area of East Baltimore - sparking discussion of whether subsidies should be needed to help a successful business expand. City officials are praising the deal, which goes before the Board of Estimates Wednesday, as an inexpensive way to keep a large employer in Baltimore. But others are questioning why H&S needs any help from a cash-strapped city that has cut back on fire companies and recreation centers in recent years.

Speckled robins' eggs and jelly beans sit atop knolls of bright green grass on other cupcakes, and a neon-colored marshmallow chick tops a fourth variety. Created on mounds of butter cream frosting with a signature swirl, they are among the Easter offerings at Kupcakes & Co., an Elkridge bakery that produces 10,000 cupcakes a week. Ninety specialty flavors such as Pancakes and Bacon, Strawberries and Champagne, and Salted Caramel rotate on the bakery's daily flavor calendar.
