Celebrate Mom's with Baked Goods!

Many cultures all over the world have been celebrating mothers for thousands of years.  In the United States, Mother’s Day was made a national holiday in 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson signed the proclamation.   101 years later we still proudly partake in this holiday to honor mothers and motherhood on the second Sunday in May.

Mother’s Day is that special time of year when we have a whole day in appreciation of all that our mom’s do for us.   Just like each mother is different, all of us celebrate a bit differently.  Maybe you bring your mother flowers or maybe you take the time to remember and be thankful for all that she has done for you.  At Beatrice Bakery we want to help make your Mother’s Day something special and we are doing that the best way we know how; with our baked goods.

Everything we make is on sale for 25% off from April 30th through May 4th in preparation for Mother’s Day.  Milk Chocolate Fruit & Nut Squares, our assortment of Fruit Cakes, Breakfast Breads, Coffee Cakes, Artisan Cakes and more so that you can get whatever is your mother’s favorite.   Beatrice Bakery Company goods are handmade by only the most experienced professionals to ensure the highest quality in baked goods.

Celebrate With Irish Creme Cake

The Irish have observed March 17th as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years.  The largest celebration to honor their patron Saint Patrick, is held in Dublin and extends over a period of several days.  Did you know that there are currently seven times more Americans with an Irish background than the population of Ireland itself!  In the United States 39% of the entire population don their green attire when observing St. Patrick’s Day and over 100,000 people watch as the Chicago River is turned green on this very special day. 

This holiday has traditionally been a feasting day, partaking in food choices of Ireland - Corned beef, cabbage, and Irish brandy, among the favorite choices.  Finding food themed to celebrate  the holiday is a necessity, and Beatrice Bakery Company has the perfect dessert - their Irish Crème Dessert Cake .  It is a delicious moist cake with a wee bit of brandy infused.  We suggest serving with whipped topping! The (14 oz) cake will serve 8-10 people. Beatrice Bakery Company cakes are handmade by only the most experienced professionals to make the best in baked goods. 

Act fast so you receive this cake in time this St. Patrick’s Day.  Contact Beatrice Bakery at (800) 228-4030 or order online at
Where ever you go, what ever you do, may the "Luck of the Irish" be there with you!

International Fruitcake Eating Competition RESULTS

The Winner of 2014 Championship - Kyle "The Hammer" Hanner from St. Louis, MO, retains his title again this year eating a 1 lb Grandma's Fruit & Nut Cake in 2 minutes 33 seconds. Watch the competition

Congratulations Kyle!  And thanks to all the participants and Kevin at Santa's Candy Castle for making this an event not to miss!

4th Annual
Fruitcake Eating Competition
held in Santa Claus, IN

Yes, we are sponsoring this competition again!  Blogging and twitter messages by last year's participant Mick Foley (WWE - Hall of Famer / Legend)  created lots of buzz again this year. Coordinator Kevin Klosowski of Santa's Candy Castle received lots of inquiries asking how to compete.  Participants have come from Pennsylvania, Florida, Missouri, Tennessee and Ohio in the past.  To secure a place in the competition, contestants first had to pass a qualifying event at the Santa's Candy Castle in Santa Claus, IN, held on Nov. 22. (side note: participants told Kevin they would only take part if it was Grandma's Fruit & Nut Cake being served again)

Eight very excited contestants are lined up including Mick Foley and last year's winner from St. Louis, MO - Kyle "The Hammer" Hanner (he wore a shirt with hammer logo and was quite a trip to watch).

Our judges this year include a former NFL football player and a reporter fro WFIE 14 News (Evansville's NBC TV affiliate).
Fruitcake Eating Championship is this weekend

Saturday December 6th
11:00am CST
