A Special Gift for Valentine’s Day

Do you really want to give that special someone sparkly jewelry, lacy lingerie, or a dozen roses when you can tempt their sweet tooth with delectable treats from our bakery in Schaumburg?

Instead, make your sweetheart’s mouth water on Feb. 14 with a strawberry shortcake or cheesecake in the shape of a heart. After all, nothing proclaims your love louder than brownie lollipops on a stick, dipped in chocolate and garnished with Valentine’s Day symbols.

Showing Love with Bakery Treats

Food has always been a way to show your love to someone who holds a special place in your heart. From your favorite casserole to home-baked bread to sweets, food says, “I love you!” in the most delicious way.

Extend the love of Valentine’s Day to your entire family with a buttery coffee cake with cherry preserves shaped like a heart. They’ll show their appreciation with swift consumption. Or consider a centerpiece cake – three layers with strawberry cream filling and ombre-pink buttercream icing dotted with white chocolate hearts — sweets for the sweet.

Be sure to order and pick up ahead of time for Feb. 14 is a Sunday, a day that your bakery in Schaumburg may be closed.

Delicious Baked Goods for Paczki Day & Mardi Gras

Feb. 16 is an auspicious day when two holidays come together. Celebrate Paczki Day and Mardi Gras on Feb. 16 with the pastries that are synonymous with each occasion – paczki and King’s Cake. Mark the holiday with these pastries in Schaumburg. And just on this one day, our bakers have decided to declare the calorie count as 0 for both treats!


Who can resist paczki — a yeast doughnut filled with jam and covered with powdered sugar? Tasty and sweet, this Polish delicacy isn’t limited to those of Polish descent. This is something people of all nationalities can enjoy. Be sure to seek paczki with plenty of jam, such as strawberry, apricot, blueberry or lemon. Our bakers like to overfill these treats. Other yummy fillings include cheese, custard, and chocolate.

King’s Cake

Another great reason to consume baked goods on Feb. 16 is Mardis Gras. There is a limited time to delight in King’s Cake – only during Mardi Gras – because it’s thought to be bad luck to eat this treat out of season.

One excellent recipe for these pastries in Schaumburg calls for filling Danish coffeecake dough with butter, raspberry, or almond. Our bakers drizzle icing on top and sprinkle with colored sugar. Of course, they add beads and the baby figurine.
