Holiday Events in 2022

ALBA’s Holiday Brunch

Sunday, December 25th and Sunday, January 1st 

 Ackerman Heritage House Christmas Bakeshop 

 Invite Ackerman Heritage House into your Christmas traditions with its prepared baked goods. 

Yule Log: This light and rich French dessert features a chocolate cake roll filled with a chocolate whipped cream filling laced with caramel. A luscious chocolate frosting and edible poinsettia decoration adorn this festive yule log.

This dessert centerpiece can feed up to 10 of your friends/family members. In place of the tradition of burning the yule log on Christmas Eve, you and your loved ones can indulge this scrumptious yule log cake. ($75 plus tax per baked good item). 

Christmas Tea Takeaway: Enjoy treats with loved ones on Christmas morning or gift them to a family member who would like to have the Ackerman tea experience at home. Enjoy gingerbread scones and Ackerman crumpets with house-made eggnog glaze and candied cranberry butter. The gift set serves three and costs $45 plus tax per gift set.

The Model Bakery 

The Model Bakery will be preparing traditional favorites and special treats to take the pressure off holiday chef, allowing more time to visit with family. 

Start the day with a pan of cinnamon rolls or sticky buns hot out of the oven, pumpkin bread or cranberry orange nut loaf, Model Bakery’s famous morning pastries and, of course, Oprah’s favorite English muffins. 

Turkey and gravy will taste even better with Model Bakery’s professionally crafted breads and rolls. Their signature pain au levain boule and walnut sage levain batard are available, along with pain de mie dinner rolls. 

Desserts include traditional pumpkin and pecan pies, apple pie with streusel topping and pear nut tart with hazelnuts and pistachios and festive holiday iced sugar cookies. 

Wondering what to get that special someone? Oprah’s Favorite Things Gift Set (12 English Muffins with a jar of Model Bakery preserves) or The Model Bakery Cookbook is a great way to share the gift of home baked treats as a Christmas, host or hostess gift.
