Sweet & Salzig

Back Tag (Baking Day):

The ‘Back Tag’, or baking day, is a tradition that’s kept alive in some of the little villages in South Germany, especially ‘im Ländle’, my region of origin.

On a certain day of the month, the women of the village would gather, ignite the old wood fire oven in the old baking house – usually located in                                          the center of the village – and then bake breads which anyone can purchase afterwards. Before the oven is hot enough, they would bake savory cakes for                          their lunch and sell those ones as well.

As we also want to propose our cakes to anyone who just wants one for a weekend, we will also hold a ‘Back Tag’ once a month. We will announce                                      the date via our newsletter and on our website with a small list of selected cakes, fitting to the season.

One can then pre-order a cake which can then be collected on the Back Tag day at a certain location, or we can deliver the cakes for an additional fee within                      the Manhattan area.

If you are based outside Manhattan, in one of the boroughs, please inquire first if we can deliver, and for the extra charge for delivery. 

For our 'Back Tag' we offer different cake sizes:   6",  7", 8", 9" and 11" (depending on cake).
