Celebrate Pi Day the Right Way

Bakery in SchaumburgFans of math, fans of science, and fans of pies rejoice when March 14th comes around.

It’s not because they’re getting ready to celebrate the Ides of March, that fated day from Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar or Saint Patrick’s Day. It’s because they have their sights set on the big day itself. Pi Day.

Yes, that’s spelled correctly. It’s Pi as in the mathematical constant 3.14, which equates to the third month and the 14th day. Clever, yes?

At Jarosch Bakery, we think it is, and that’s why at our bakery in Schaumburg, we’re happy to make pies for everyone on Pi Day, from hard-core intellectuals to the most devoted fans of sweets and treats.

A full-service bakery will have plenty of delicious pies for you to order. Think about coconut cream or apple or blueberry or cherry or strawberry cream, and you will be watching the calendar waiting for Pi Day to get here.

You don’t have to know how to calculate the area of a circle using the equation A=πr2, but it does help if you appreciate the old joke that “pies aren’t squared, they’re round.” Either way, what better way to enjoy a whimsical day than to have a slice with a friend or two? You can even use the formula above to calculate the area of your pie if you’re ambitious, and you can resist its temptation for that long.

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!

Paczki

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.

Bakery Cakes vs. Grocery Store Cakes

While at the supermarket, you might find yourself wandering over to the bakery section and eyeing one of their festive cakes. Sure, grocery store cakes might look good, but how do they really compare when it comes to cakes made at a bakery in Schaumburg?

One bite and you’ll instantly notice a difference. Most grocery store cakes are made in bulk with cost-saving ingredients to have enough product for every customer while remaining cost-effective. The key phrase here is “cost-saving product.” These cakes lack the skills, quality ingredients, and attention to detail that come from bakery artisans and talented decorators rather than made from mass-market production.

Jarosch Bakery Cakes are made to impress. They take time and use only the finest ingredients to ensure that each bite is as flavorful as the cake is beautiful. Our custom cakes show off the delicate nature of the cake dough paired with a tasty selection of fillings, showing off how each flavor works individually as well as together. One bite of a bakery cake will show you just how big the difference in quality is when compared to mass market cakes from grocery stores.

Our Bakery in Schaumburg Explains the Difference Between Tortes and Layer Cakes

Bakery in SchaumburgLayer cake or torte – some people toss around the terms interchangeably, but there is a difference, and Jarosch Bakery knows what it is. We’re going to use this article to explain the ways one delicious treat differs from the other.

For starters, a layer cake that you buy at your local bakery in Schaumburg is just what you would expect. It’s a cake made up of layers. The question is, how many? The answer is only two layers and one layer of filling between them.

Now let’s turn our attention to tortes. They are like a supercharged version of layer cakes that you can find at a bakery. Tortes feature multiple layers of cake, with each layer separated by a layer of filling.

That takes care of the inside, but what about the outside? Are they the same? No, not really. Tortes are usually iced with whipped cream, while layer cakes traditionally have icing made of fudge or buttercream. Occasionally a bakery will mix things up and offer a torte with fudge or chocolate buttercream icing.

However, they are made and finished; we are confident of one thing. They are all delicious and the perfect treat for any get-together or holiday gathering.

What You Need for Christmas from Our Bakery in Schaumburg

Bakery in SchaumburgThe holiday season is jam-packed with demands on our time, and baking is one of the biggest. The best way to handle that chore is by letting someone else take care of it for you. A perfect solution is to find a bakery in Schaumburg you can rely on for baked goodies of all sorts.

Jarosch Bakery had been serving the community for more than 60 years, and we know what baked sweets and treats people buy for Christmas. We’re going to use this article to tell you what no holiday gathering should be lacking.

What would a Christmas gathering be without cookies? It would be pretty bland, of course. We find that butter cookies and sugar cookies are two of the most popular choices. And you can’t forget gingerbread cookies either on your trip to the bakery. Gingerbread figures are always a hit, and gingerbread houses are another seasonal favorite.

With cookies go cakes, so make sure you have your hot cocoa cake, yule log cake, Christmas torte, or snowflake cake. A customized holiday cake is another option too; just don’t forget to place your order at your local bakery early.

Cupcakes, bread, rolls, and stollen are other holiday staples no Christmas should be missing. Finally, make sure that you have at least one fruit cake on your list.
