Have a Festive Fat Tuesday with Jarosch
Laissez les bons temps rouler! If you're craving classic Chicago paczki, look no further than Jarosch Bakery in Elk Grove Village, IL! Beginning February 6th through February 28th, you'll find King's Cakes decked out in the traditional Mardi Gras purple, green, and gold. After Valentine's Day we'll begin making Mardi Gras Petit Fours and Tortes as well! And get your Paczki fix early: we'll have select varieties available everyday through Saturday, March 4th!
Celebrate Carnival season with a King's Cake! The history of this cake dates back 300 years and since it's considered bad luck to consume a King's Cake outside of Mardi Gras season, we suggest you enjoy a few before the season ends.
The Jarosch Bakery King's Cake uses Danish coffeecake dough filled with one of three flavors: All Butter, Raspberry, or Almond. Each is generously drizzled with classic icing and colored sugar. Mardi Gras beads and the baby figurine are placed on top of the cake. These are fun treats to share at work or with family and friends!
Mardi Gras Torte
For those of us that want to truly indulge on Fat Tuesday before the Lenten fast, the colorful Mardi Gras Torte is the way to go. This torte has three layers of white vanilla cake, each colored to represent Mardi Gras, and has buttercream filling and icing. To finish the festive look, we add a tri-colored border, rosettes, beads, and a carnival mask!
These gorgeous diamond-shaped Mardi Gras Petit Fours have the traditional white cake with strawberry preserve and buttercream fillings. To add a pop of color, they're iced with purple, green, or golden yellow fondant icing, sprinkled with sparkly pixie dust, and finished with a Mardi Gras sugar decoration. A perfect little treat for one!
Another colorful and scrumptious option for your Mardi Gras celebration is the Mardi Gras Cupcake Six Pack. Each pack has three buttery yellow cupcakes and three fluffy devil's food cupcakes iced with creamy colored buttercream in the traditional purple, green, and golden yellow. For a festive finish, each cupcake is garnished with sprinkles, a Mardi Gras sugar lay-on, and gold pixie dust for added sparkle!
Mardi Gras season also means Paczki season! This year Paczki Day is Tuesday, February 28th, 2017. These Polish delicacies-- pronounced "Punch-key"-- are traditionally fried yeast donuts filled with prune jam and covered in powdered sugar.
When it comes to Paczki, we believe in a greater filling to donut ratio so-- with the exception of our Custard Paczki-- instead of injecting the fried donut, we slice it in half and add a heaping amount of delicious filling! That's how we do it at Jarosch! Choose from 13 filling flavors and ORDER EARLY to ensure you get all the varieties you want! Select paczki flavors will be available in store at the beginning of February; you'll be able to find our full variety of paczki flavors from February 23rd through February 28th.
