Pipka has been baking her grandmother’s Almond Cake for her family for years. A few years ago she decided to bake the cake for her customers to taste while they were shopping. Everyone went crazy for this cake! At the customer’s request, Pipka imported from Germany the special cake pan used to bake this moist delicious cake. Now people all over the country are baking, giving and savoring this incredible easy-to-make almond cake.Pipka bakes over 300 cakes during the Door County season, just for tasting! She loves to bake and finds it relaxing after a day’s work. Never content to do something the same over and over again, Pipka started added other ingredients to her cakes. Chopped dried apricots, blueberries, chocolate chips and other yummy morsels started making their way into the cakes, much to everyone’s delight. Again, at the customerâs request, Pipka wrote a little Cakelet cookbook of recipes for enhancing the basic recipe. She hand makes each Cakelet book, adding photos, stickers, and ephemera through the pages. To date she has sold over 1200 hand made Cakelet books.There are over 40 recipes in the Almond Cake Cakelet book, including various sauces and ideas for gift-giving. Turtle Sundae Almond Cake, Deanneâs Nutella Bella Almond Cake and, everybody’s favorite, Door County Cherry Chocolate Almond Cake are just a few of the recipes in the Cakelet book that everyone loves. One Recipe, one bowl, 38 minutes in the oven, then eat or freeze up to 6 months.A perfect cake for giving and sharing with those whom you love.
