PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A beloved Philadelphia bakery is celebrating a century in business with - what else? - birthday kake.  

Tastykake is marking its 100th anniversary on Tuesday. The maker of treats such as Butterscotch Krimpets and Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes has scheduled festivities at its Navy Yard headquarters.  

Employees also plan 100 deliveries of tasty sweets to charities and first responders throughout the city. In addition, the snack company will introduce a limited edition Birthday Kake Cupcake.  

Tastykake made 100 cakes on its first day of business in 1914. Now, it produces nearly 5 million cakes, doughnuts, cookies and pies each day.  

Tasty Baking Co. became part of Thomasville-based Flowers Foods Inc. in 2011.
