Bakeries across the country are recovering from Fat Tuesday celebrations. For one, Hinkley Bakery in Jackson, Michigan, was a very busy place as paczki flew out the door at quite a pace. A line snaked through the bakery as of 7 a.m. on Fat Tuesday, Feb. 17, 2015, according to MLive.com.
Owner Brian Hinkley has been working on making the sweet treat since Sunday and planned to make 600 dozen total by the time the day was over. Hinkley Bakery offered seven varieties of paczki including custard, creme, raspberry, blueberry, apple cinnamon, cream cheese and lemon. The bakery won the top prize in MLive's search for Michigan's Best Doughnut.
