My husband purchased my cake-of-choice, a lightly glazed angel food, from Trefzger’s bakery on the north end of Peoria. Trefzger’s is a local institution. Trefzger’s baked our daughter’s wedding cake. Trefzger’s has old-fashioned glass-topped counters and take-a-number service.
Entering the small interior of this confection land is like time travel. Thumbprint cookies in pastel colors, iced brownies, snickerdoodles, and gooey yeast rolls aren’t as trendy as multi-grain, but they transport me to childhood–like a pretty white angel cake with a blue birthday candle. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
