Design A Custom Cake From Jarosch Bakery

Cake turns even an ordinary day into one worth celebrating. The more cake the better! No matter, whatever the occasion, delicious and mouthwatering cake is an essential part of any special event. No festive celebration or holiday gathering would be complete without the presence of the piece de resistance – the cake.

Typically you might purchase a traditional store-bought cake that’s available for immediate pickup. These are pretty generic and come in the standard selections: chocolate or vanilla cake, whipped, or buttercream frosting. These are fine for a last-might need, but when you’re planning a special celebration, you must have custom cakes in Schaumburg IL from Jarosch Bakery.

Custom cakes make the moment extra special. They show you put extra effort into creating the perfect centerpiece to symbolize this joyful celebration. More than the cake and icing flavors, the theme of the birthday or anniversary cake tells about the person it’s celebrating and adds a personal touch to your event.

Whether you need a cake for 10 or 100 people, we have endless choices available for you to create the perfect personalized cake. Some of the options for you to consider include:

Cake Shapes: Round cake or 2-3 layer sheet cakes

Cake Flavors: Yellow, devil’s food, half & half, white, marble, funfetti, graham cracker, banana, red velvet, carrot, angel food, and German chocolate

Filling: We offer 40 filling options. Choose from classics, like buttercream or whipped cream, preserves, fruits, and flavored creams, plus other scrumptious fillings, including cannoli or chocolate mousse.

Icing Flavors: Buttercream, whipped cream, chocolate buttercream, chocolate whipped cream, fudge, cream cheese, poured ganache, and fondant

European Touch: Liqueurs add an extra burst of flavor when drizzled with Amaretto, Kahlua, Chambord, Rum, Kirschwasser, or Baileys

Visit our website for the complete list of offerings, including ingredient contents, as well as examples of our custom cakes. Make your next party or special event one to remember with custom cakes from Jarosch Bakery.

Celebrate Oktoberfest With Classic German Treats

Oktoberfest is upon us as the first day began on September 21. And just like St. Patrick’s day, during Oktoberfest, everyone taps into their German heritage to celebrate. The German festival is a worldwide phenomenon celebrating Bavarian culture with pints and pints of beer. Here’s what you need to know about this fun and festive tradition.

Oktoberfest typically runs between 16-18 days with the last day being October 6 this year. Oktoberfest began as a wedding celebration more than 200 years ago when Bavaria’s Crown Prince Ludwig married Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen on Oct. 12, 1810. The wedding was celebrated with multiple days of drinking, feasting, and horse races. The celebration then became an annual event.

Oktoberfest celebrations can be found all over the world, but the main event is in Munich, Germany, where the first Oktoberfest was held. In addition to beer, festival traditions include traditional Bavarian music and traditional Bavarian clothing, dirndls, and lederhosen.

Here at Jarosch Bakery, we’re getting in on the celebration with our delicious German desserts, delicacies, and pastries in Schaumburg. Yes, Germany is well-known for its beer and pretzels, but their desserts don’t get the credit they deserve! You can enjoy these signature German items at your next Oktoberfest celebration:
Apple Strudel
Blitz Torte and Blitz Torte Square
Bienenstuckand Bienenstuck Square
German Chocolate Cake
German Chocolate Cup
Rye Bread
Poppy Loaf
Bratwurst, hot dog, and burger buns.

Although the official festival is coming to a close soon, you can enjoy our German-inspired goodies all year long. Some treats are seasonal so be sure to order yours today before they are gone until next Oktoberfest. Call us at (814) 437-1234 to place your order today.
