ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — It's going to be a busy week for local bakeries.

Denver7 visited Trompeau Bakery this week as they gear up to bake and sell thousands of hot cross buns during the week before Easter.

"More than I ever thought we would," said owner Beth Ginsberg, on how surprised she's been with the popularity of hot cross buns. "On Good Friday and Easter, we'll probably sell about 700."

In the above video, you can see how Trompeau Bakery creates their hot cross buns with their own modern twist.

"Is it a roll? Is it a pastry? What is it? It's delicious, and people like to eat it with their meal on Easter," said Ginsberg.
