BAUMKUCHEN (TREE CAKE)
We are pleased to again offer authentic German Baumkuchen
to our customers this year (2015).
Made by Kreutzkamm Bakery, founded in 1825
in Dresden, Germany.
This special treat – known as the "cake of kings" as well as the "king
of cakes" –
has a history that goes back more than 500 years when chefs for European royalty
perfected the time-honored technique of baking thin layers of cake batter on rotating irons,
one thin layer at a time. The "bark" coating is a layer of dark chocolate which is poured on
once the cake is complete.When sliced, the cake reveals many thin layers resembling the age-rings of a tree.
The cake measures approximately 7-1/2 inches high x 5 inches in diameter, and weighs 17.5 oz (500g).
Available from mid November through mid January.
The cake will keep for several months if kept in a cool, dry place.
After slicing, we suggest wrapping tightly in a plastic bag and refrigerating.
Each baumkuchen is carefully packaged to avoid damage in shipping.
NOTE: Included with each Baumkuchen is a descriptive
folder with a brief history of the Tree Cake
and a diagram with suggestions for cutting, serving and storing. Click here to review.
Also, a festive treat on New Year's Day, with tea, sherry, or Champagne!
