European Baked Good and Specialty Cakes
For many folks familiar with Wisconsin's finest, the term “spotted cow” brings to mind a favorite beer, but Rolling Pin Bakery offers a sweet, fluffy delicious alternative with their Spotted Cow cakes. An original flavor since they opened in December 2002, the cakes pay homage to Wisconsin on the inside--with an abundance of dairy in the rich buttercream and moist vanilla and chocolate cake layers--and on the outside--resembling the state’s dairy farm favorite, Holstein Cows, with chocolate ganache cow spots.
A sweet white chocolate raspberry mousse cake also hits the spot, with decadent raspberry mousse and raspberry puree layered between vanilla cake, covered in white chocolate mousse frosting and white chocolate curls that both crunch and melt in your mouth.
Co-owners Tanya Laiter and Bill McKlight share a love of creating and both hold art degrees. “We decided to start making edible art, doing trendy creations for customers,” says Laiter.
The rotating selection of cakes available daily are a work of art and flavor. The Rolling Pin Bakeshop has become the Fitchburg/Madison area favorite for beautiful wedding, birthday, and all celebrations that are marked with joyous pastry.
Rolling Pin also has a wide variety of sweets including cookies, donuts, breads, and pies. They also offer a cozy cafe setting where you can enjoy your sweet treat, or stay for breakfast or lunch. A homemade Belgian waffle topped with fresh fruit and whipped cream or the Quiche du Jour are just a couple of breakfast options and the lunch menu offers several different sandwiches like Bill’s Italian, Cuban press, and a New Orleans-style muffaletta.
