I don't know for sure, but assume they would make fasnachts, the Pennsylvania German doughnuts made for the same occasion, as it is a Pennsylvania German bakery.

No, they close at 5:00pm on Saturday and don't reopen until midweek. For the Flower Show, they were asked to open on Monday (Sunday they were still closed). They were mobbed on Monday of the show and people were so happy... More
