Hays said the menu, at first, will be limited, serving up some of her tried-and-true favorites such as chocolate chip and confetti cookies as well as tahini buttercream whoopie pies. Breakfast pastries, avocado bread and English muffins will also have spots on the menu.

The Baton Rouge resident said she's always enjoyed sharing yummy things with her friends and family. Initially, she baked as a way to relieve stress after work, but now her passion is turning into a business.

Hays' shop will be the ninth vendor for the food hall and a tenth vendor is likely in the works, according to the local business report.
