Lithuanian Tree Cake/Šakotis/Raguolis
Article (in Lithuanian language) in a “Amerikos Lietuvis” – Lithuananian Weekly
We bake 3 sizes of Tree Cake / Sakotis:
Large minimum 4 LB 16″ tall (order 7 to 10 days in advance, please) Regular price $ 60.00
Medium 2 LB 7 3/4″ tall $ 30.00
Small 1 LB, 4 “ – $ 15.00
As most of you know, it is very hard to bake all Tree Cakes with identical weight. So from now on all our Tree Cakes will be exact or more in promised weight: Small=1 LB, Medium 2 LB & Large =4 LB. If somehow one of Tree Cakes will be less in weight you will find fresh pieces inside of the Tree Cake to gain promised weight and it will look like this one.
Large Sakotis/Tree Cake need to be ordered at least 7 to 10 days in advance (weekends and holidays not counted) with exception if we have them in stock in our storage room. Also add a week (or more for distanced locations) for shipping via Parcel Post. Priority Mail available but as farther you live, more it will cost.
Small and Medium we bake almost every week and orders usually processed within a day or two. (except – Long weekends as Memorial, Independence, Labor day), Lithuanian Holidays or festivals , Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day.-orders in advance may needed for those occasions )

DO NOT KEEP TREE CAKE IN REFRIGERATOR OR FREEZER. KEEP IN DRY SHADY PLACE OFF AND AVOID DIRECT SUN RAYS.
If you did refrigerate or freeze it – leave for few a days in the warm dry place until it dries completely (but do not dry it in Owen -it become dark brown). If you freeze it -sorry,you probably lost original smell and trade mark (unfreeze cake in most cases will became fluffy, crooked a bit but still can be dried up and consumed .
Tree Cake can be stored in the dry cool place up to 6-8 month in original cellophane wrapping. If unwrapped, it will dry faster and often can absorb odors . That’s why the cellophane wrap should be around it at all time.
