SWEET & SAVORY CAKES

Our seasonal fruits are organic and sourced locally, from NY state farmers.
We only deliver within the New York City area. Delivery prices may vary, depending on destination.
, 'Eat by Date' of our cakes
Our cakes are freshly baked to order.
Sweet cakes, especially those with cream or fresh fruits, should be kept in the fridge and eaten within a couple of days.
Dry cakes can be maintained at room temperature for a few days as long as they are kept in a sealed container or covered.
Savory cakes should be kept in the fridge and eaten within two days.
You may re-heat your savory cake to eat it warm. Only re-heat the serving size of the cake you wish to eat. To do so, either preheat the oven and bake at 350 F for about 5-10 minutes (depending on oven), or simply use a Microwave (follow your microwave instructions for reheating pastry).
If you decide to freeze the cakes, just do so on the day of delivery or pick-up. Thaw them in the fridge and re-bake them for about 5-10 minutes in a preheated oven (350 F) till warm. You may put them directly from the freezer in the preheated oven, the baking time will then be about 10-15 min and you may need to cover them with aluminum foil so they don't darken too much on top. Every oven works differently. Therefore, re-baking times may vary. But make sure the cakes are really hot, especially inside.

Some like the cookies soft and moist, some like them more hardened-up or brittle and love to dip them into their coffee, tea or hot chocolate. The longer they sit, the more they harden-up.
Just like our cakes, all our cookies are handmade, meaning they will never look 100% alike.
Here are some Tips if you want to 'moisten/soften-up' the Christmas Cookies:
Zimtsternle (Cinnamon Cookies) can harden up. To soften them up, simply add a parchment paper and add a slice of apple on top for 24h, then remove the apple slice. The apple will moisten the cookies.
For all our cakes, Christmas cookies and Christstollen, we only use high quality organic, natural and locally-sourced ingredients, besides a few specific ingredients, imported from Europe.
Seasonal fruits are organic and sourced locally from NY state farmers.
