In honor of Easter Sunday on March 27, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and most definitely Borgata Baking Co. present this little primer of fun facts on Easter treats to fill out your family’s Easter baskets.
Cupcakes – A small cake designed to serve one person. First showed up in an American cookbook in 1796 titled Ye Olde American Cookbook (We made the title up).
Easter Malt Ball Cupcake – The first malted milk treats were invented in the 1870s as an infant food. But people liked it so much, everyone started eating it – especially at the movies.
Caramel Cream Egg Pop – A pretty unique Borgata Baking Co. treat.
Cannoli – An Italian pastry dessert of the Sicily region. The singular is cannolo, meaning “little tube.” But most people use the plural as in “May I have more cannoli?”
Macaron – A French sweet meringue-based confection made with egg white, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond and Borgata Baking Co.’s Thaddeus DuBois’ specialty.
Bonbons – If it’s a small sweet candy, you can call it a bonbon.
Easter Basket – You throw a lot of Easter treats in a basket because it’s easier to carry. Sounds as good as any other explanation.
All of the above – This month’s March Specials at Borgata Baking Co.
For Easter, Borgata Baking Co. and Borgata Executive Pastry Chef Thaddeus DuBois have come up with an array of Easter specials that will make your family’s Easter meal the envy of all.
