Our favourite German baker, The King of Cakes, Wolfgang Kelke, is back again for another year! Born in Bavaria and a trained master baker and pastry chef, Wolfgang moved to Brisbane and wanted to share his love of German breads and cakes… and so ‘The King’ was born.
Across all six days of the German Festival, King of Cakes will be catering to the hungry Lederhosened and Dirndl-wearing crowds with their sweet fare, and offer an array of to-die-for desserts: Black Forest cake, Bavarian cheesecakes, apple strudels, giant love-heart gingerbreads and many more European sweets. You’ll find the King in the bustling ‘Marktplatz’ (Market Square).
Also for Oktoberfest Brisbane 2014, the King of Cakes team will be serving up smaller gingerbread hearts, Lebkuchenherz, which are traditionally worn around your neck, like giant edible necklaces, and are taken home by many at the end of the festival. These gingerbread hearts are decorated with German phrases such as Ich Liebe Dich (I love you) and come strung with a ribbon. Edible adornments. We like!
So tuck into pretzels, Black Forest cake, Viennese chocolate cake, jam-filled donuts, Bee Sting slice, chocolate éclairs, or a traditional apple strudel with the King of Cakes at this year’s Oktoberfest Brisbane!
