In the last few years, I’ve heard a lot about Shier’s Deli & Catering in Midland, especially about their famous cakes. While some readers enjoyed hearing about my trip north in October – including my experience of trying a real northern dough – a couple were reluctant to travel all the way for lunch and suggested I try Shier’s cakes. That suggestion was taken to me, and this week I ventured out to see what Shier’s had to offer.
Shier’s, located at 2218 N. Saginaw Road, offers hot, freshly made cakes from 6 p.m. 11.00-18.00 Wednesdays and 11.00-15.00 Saturdays. If you can not come for lunch at these times, you are still lucky, as the delicacy offers frozen cakes to take home for lunch or dinner.
