Interview with Baumkuchen Farm : Wonderful cakes made with fresh and local ingredients

Baumkuchen Farm - America Newspaper

Baumkuchenfarm is located on the beautiful Big Island of Hawaii. Baumkuchen is a German word that is translated as “tree cake”. The cake was invented years ago in Germany and baked on a stick while turning. It looks like a tree stump because of its rings when it is cut. Baumkuchen is also called “the king of cakes” since it is not easy to bake it.

In the interview shared below, we gain insights into the company’s products with a fresh perspective on the values and qualities producer is looking for in the production journey.
