Zingerman’s Bakehouse - Carnival Birthday Cake

The bottom tier of the cake was designed after the classic “big top” tent of a carnival tent.  Panels of white and red white chocolate stripes cover the entirety of the cake.  But a tent wouldn’t be complete without its ropes holding it down (which really was string pinned down) and of course its front entrance.  All finished off with some chocolate candy apples.

To help this cake achieve the WOW factor, Zingerman’s created an extra large, hourglass-shaped middle tier.  This gave ample room to create a truly classic carnival feel of gold on gold stars and stripes, cinched with a turquoise belt.  That left the focal point to our golden plaque and 75, hand cut and painted in traditional carnival font.

The finishing touch of this cake was the balancing elephant.  The elephant was molded with gray-toned white chocolate.  This gave it the desired realism.  The elephant then balanced on a ball (made of rice krispies), just like they would balance in the circus.

In the end, this cake stood over two feet tall and served around 60 people.

Zingerman’s Bakehouse - Ivory-toned Wedding Cake

 In this ivory-toned hummingbird cake, the ruffled, scalloped edges symbolically mimicked the feathered bottom of the bride’s dress.  Two of the tiers above were then highlighted with lace mold cutouts.  The finishing touch was a large champagne-lustered fantasy flower with a pearl center.

Zingerman’s Deli - Pleasant Ridge Reserve Cheese and Ari (Zingerman’s co-founder) and Andy (cheesemaker at Upland’s Cheese)

Andy Hatch, cheesemaker at Uplands Cheese in Dodgeville, WI, and the man responsible for bringing the excellent and award-winning Pleasant Ridge Reserve cheese to Zingerman’s Deli.

Andy was in town to break open a special 80 lb. wheel of the Pleasant Ridge that had been maturing for over two years.  Normally, the wheels are just 10 lbs., but Andy was moved by the birth of his son to create two special large-sized commemorative wheels. He kept the first, and honored Zingerman’s by opening the second wheel here at the Deli.  Although he received multiple bids on the special wheels, Andy says he wanted it “kept in the Midwest,” and Zingerman’s are all the luckier for it.
