It may not meet Guinness's standards, but Cass Corridor's Avalon International Breads is certainly baking Detroit's biggest stollen wreath this season. The German holiday bread loaf — made with brandy-soaked fruits, nuts, spices, and topped with icing — required "special custom kitchen equipment," according to Bedrock Real Estate Services. The final product weighs around 45 pounds.
What is Stollen? Well, it is a traditional German Christmas bread with brandy-soaked fruits, nuts, and topped with icing. This big beauty is being hand made right now for our holiday celebration at City Loft in Detroit. All the sales from this wreath will go to charity just like they do every year in Dresden. #Bakehouse #avalon #stollen
Avalon isn't the first to attempt a gargantuan feat of food engineering this year. Hamtramck chocolate geniuses Bon Bon Bon designed a 313-foot-long chocolate box in October. The stunt was staged inside the RenCen and drew huge crowds.
Correction: Bedrock did not "commission" the stollen wreath.
