Who Knew?

Many of the pastries at the Black Forest House pastry table at the market have a story. For example, the Schillerlocken (we call them cream horns) harks back to Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller, a poet, dramatist & historian who lived in Germany at the turn of the 19th century. You probably know his work - he wrote the poem that Beethoven set to music in Ode to Joy.
The name refers to the way he wore his hair. Now, how cool is that? That little Webb City has a pastry commemorating a dead German poet's hair style!

& it's really tasty & sugar-free.
