The Golden Rose Cakery is a locally owned bakery right in beautiful Frederick MD. Servicing the local Frederick area, as well as the surrounding 30 mile radius, we offer home baked goods made in small batches with great care.

Depth of Light Photography
Depth of Light Photography will be offering posed ‘prom’ photos at the Masquerade Ball!  Make sure to drop by and capture your glorious ensemble.  Depth of Light Photography was founded on the idea that everyone should have lasting mementos of genuine moments, to feel the echoes of that warmth for when those moments have long since passed. For every photoshoot, no matter the subject, Depth of Light makes it a priority to have a fun, comfortable time where creative energy can run free. Photographs always hold a memory that is seen only by the people in it; how you feel and what you do during the photoshoot matters. Sam makes a point to leave you feeling happy, confident, and extraordinary in every shoot, every time.

Tempered Raven
We at Tempered Raven believe a custom blade is more than a pretty display piece – it is a tool. Each piece we craft, regardless if hand-crafted or hand-forged, serves a purpose for its owner and much like any other tool, whether practical or ceremonial, it should be reliable and long lasting; an heirloom passed from one generation to the next. This is why we pour our sweat and tears (and sometimes blood) into each blade until they are hardened and tempered for use and abuse. Just because our blades are tools, doesn’t mean they should not look beautiful, which is why we focus our attention on details like handle material, pins, stippling, or the trueness of each blade. Only by remaining dedicated to the purpose of each piece do we remain true to our craft.
