Leaf & Crumb, a bakery specializing in tea-infused cakes and cupcakes, just opened at 4416 East Eighth Avenue. Owner Jennifer Rocha, who gave up a career as a pharmacist to pursue her passion for baking, and her crew officially put the icing on the cake yesterday.

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
