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 www.beatricebakery.com.
 
Where ever you go, what ever you do, may the "Luck of the Irish" be there with you!

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
