With Friday being a day dedicated toward love, some are using the holiday to celebrate a valentine of a different kind....Dr. Valentine McGillycuddy, one of Rapid City's first mayors.
The restoration of the McGillycuddy home located on South Street has been an ongoing project and piece of cake bakery is using a Valentines Day special to help raise funds for the project to continue.
The bakery is selling specially decorated petits fours, truffles and cookies with a McGillycuddy themed card.
A portion of the proceeds will go to Historic Rapid City, who have been leading the restoration efforts of the iconic home.
Piece Of Cake Bakery owner Karen Swisher says she chose to a very special recipe for this special occasion,
"We chose the petit fours because it was maybe tied into the times when people would have tea. It's a dessert that you don't see very often so we just thought it would be a fun pairing for the McGillycuddy house."
McGillycuddy also served the Dean of the School of Mines, as well as the states first surgeon general.
