What makes us Unique?
People often ask, “Why should I make a special trip to your bakery when they sell breads, cookies and cakes in almost every store that I walk into?” The simple answer is freshness, freshness, freshness.
Everything is mixed, baked and decorated right here in Huntington. Freshness is bread baked within hours of serving it. No bread is sold the second day. Freshness is cakes made of all natural ingredients, without the need for a long list of preservatives. Freshness is 100% pure dairy fresh whipped cream without the need for extenders. Freshness allows you to keep a cake in your home for extra days. Customers reap the benefits, not the store. Reinwald’s commitment to freshness means that area soup kitchens get all of the day-old bread, rolls and breakfast pastries. It means the bakers in the back are there to meet your special needs.
Always appreciative and ever-protective of all the things that make Huntington a special place to live, Reinwald’s dedication to the community is evident in the daily efforts of the entire staff and the company philosophy. Our professional bakers, designers and sales staff relish the opportunity to work with many local organizations and enjoy seeing the happy smiles of satisfied customers--be it from a cupcake, birthday cake or wedding cake.

March 1st is also Ash Wednesday, the start of the Christian Lenten season. People around the world are familiar with the celebrations of the oncoming lent. It is Mardis Gras in New Orleans: Carnival in many places including Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil and Cologne, Germany. In the Bavarian region of Germany, where my father comes from, it is called Fasching. Fat Tuesday is referred to as Fasching Dienstag.
These events started out as deeply rooted celebrations of the coming of spring. As Christianity spread, many Lenten rituals were performed for the preparation of Easter. It seems that...
January is the slowest month of the year in the bakery business. I took advantage of some extra time and unpacked a few more boxes that were left "untouched" in the move. Of course as I unpacked a box of books, I leafed through some to determine it’s placement on my book shelf.
One book was a compilation of bakery recipes that had appeared in previous issues of a weekly baking magazine published in New York and Chicago. The book was published in 1945. In reading some of the accompanying articles, I was amazed with...
