Inspiring the Next Generation of Bakers
Collin Street Bakery, a name synonymous with tradition and excellence in the world of fruitcakes, recently opened its doors to a group of enthusiastic young bakers. As they embarked on a journey through the bakery's hallowed halls, these kids had the unique opportunity to be a part of the fruitcake baking process—from making the batter to decorating the fruitcakes and even getting involved in selling these delectable treats at the café.

From Dough to Deliciousness
For these young visitors, the day began with an exciting bakery tour. They marveled at the industrial ovens, the array of ingredients, and the master bakers meticulously at work. But the highlight of the visit was yet to come.

Decorating with Delight
Once the fruitcake batter was mixed and spooned into their bundt pans, it was time for the children to express their individualistic creativity by adorning the cakes with Collin Street Bakery’s signature fruitcake toppings—glaceéd cherries, glaceéd pineapples, and mammoth pecan halves. Gradually, each fruitcake became a unique masterpiece reflecting the personality and imagination of its young decorator.
Taking the Spotlight at the Café
The young bakers didn't just stop at baking and decorating; they also got to experience the entire journey of a fruitcake. Taking their creations to Collin Street Bakery’s 7th Avenue Café location, they helped sell professionally decorated fruitcakes. As for their individually decorated cakes, they took those home to share with their families.
