Cake-decorating classes make something edible more beautiful, unlike smooshing a pie in a swimsuit model's face, which makes something beautiful more edible. Give cakes a face-lift like a pro with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of baked goods at Supreme Bakery in West Orange.
Owned and operated by the Stolz family for more than 35 years, Supreme Bakery fills its shelves with a fresh-baked bounty of certified-kosher breads, cookies, pies, and pastries made from scratch each day. Earning accolades from Modern Baking for the store's “high quality products”, bakers handcraft a variety of artisan breads, including baguettes made with all-natural, unbleached, unbromated flour mixed with water, salt, and yeast ($2.40/loaf). Or try a loaf of homemade challah bread ($3.95), which may be enjoyed fresh, fried into french toast, or used to smuggle a pound of raspberry-filled butter cookies ($12.75) across state lines. Customers preparing for a celebration can carry out a 7-inch yellow cake with buttercream frosting ($20.75) or design a custom cake in any size using the online cake builder, and cupcakes featuring beloved Sesame Street characters delight youngsters and keep Big Bird’s headshot in circulation ($2.55).
Aside from keeping neighborhood pantries stocked with sweet and savory treats, Supreme Bakery gives back to the community by supplying food to three local soup kitchens. All baking on the premises is under the strict supervision of Rabbi Isaiah Hertzberg and certified master baker Richard Stolz, who both ensure that staff members adhere to kosher practices and always eat their vegetables.
Supreme Bakery whips up imaginative baked goods just one mile from Thomas Edison's own inventor's laboratory. This juxtaposition is apt, given the bakery's penchant for cakes that resemble open books, designer handbags, sneakers, basketball jerseys, and even invisible friends. However, fanciful presentations don't trump the Stolz family's decades-long commitment to old-fashioned baking techniques. For more than 35 years, Supreme Bakery has baked an extensive selection of certified-kosher goods onsite and from scratch daily. The bakers prepare everything from New York–style donuts, artisan breads, and éclairs to multi-tiered, meticulously sculpted wedding cakes. Not all of the bakers' efforts go to feeding customers, though. Supreme Bakery also gives back to the community by regularly donating food to three local soup kitchens.
