Meet German Cakes, Barossa
Who? Ros Howe
Where are you based? Truro
A little history: I have a long history of making cakes, having been a stallholder back in 2014. Originally known as Cherry Lane Bakery, after a break I am now trading under German Cakes Barossa, offering traditional favourites and some new creations, all with a Germanic twist!
What products do you sell? I sell a wide range of sweet treats including fruit streusels (crumbles), Strudels, Bienenstich (Bee Sting), Black Forest cake and cheesecake. I am also starting to introduce homemade savoury pies, watch this space!
What are your most popular products? Definitely my seasonal fruit streusels.
How did you come to be a producer? I have been baking all my life. I started out in wedding catering at the age of 12 and never really stopped! I have worked for many of the big Barossa names including Careme Pastry, but I always come back to my love of baking cakes for others to enjoy.
Who encouraged you to become a stallholder? No one really, I just love baking and it was the perfect place to sell my cakes!
Who/what inspires you? Definitely my grandmother
What are you personally most well known for? Getting straight to the point! If you want an honest answer, just ask.
How do you celebrate your success? I don’t really celebrate, but I do love seeing people enjoy my traditional German Bienenstich.
What is your favourite story from a customer about how they use your produce? I love learning what customers are going to do with their purchases, streusels that are for a family function or a church event and of course, hearing great feedback!
What advice do you share with your customers about your produce? I like to share how I would serve my streusels and strudels; best served hot, heat in an oven at 160 degrees for 20 minuites and serve with custard or fresh cream!
