Tim -
The cake from Kaltenbach's is an Ice Box Cake. Chocolate cake with whipped cream between the layers and topped with cherries and chocolate shavings. My brother had it every year for his birthday, Dec. 27th. I had the Butter Rum Cake for mine on Dec. 26th

I am currently making the Schillings Buttercake unbaked frozen in an easy bake round 9in pan.They keep up to six months in your freezer and when your ready to bake, take one out defrost it and bake it,yes it's as easy as that,it don't get any fresher than that.Don't worry about leftovers,trust me there won't be any.Walter Schilling Schillingsbakery@comcast.net

I found Schillings bakery through this site, and met up with Walter a few days before Christmas to pick up 4 buttercakes for gifts!

Just wanted to let you know that your buttercake was an absolute hit!

Everyone was and has been RAVING about it!
I found out that the bakery my parents use to get it from, before it closed, was called Han's (not sure if I am spelling right?) on york rd. in Warminster, PA ...but they said yours was the BEST they had ever tried!

I gave the first cake to my boyfriend who is on LOVE with it, and told all his friends all about it.....and now they are eager to try as well!:-)

I gave the second cake to my parents on Christmas day. My mom's eyes LIT up when she tasted it, and immediately looked at me and said "I don't have to share this or serve this tonight do I?" hahahahaha.....she wanted all to herself! I told her I had gotten my brother and my grandmom they're own cakes, and she was very relieved! LOL

so the third and fourth cakes went to my brother's family and my grandmom whom both wanted "just a taste" upon opening.... ended up eating like 1/2 the cake right off the bat!

Thank you sooooo much for helping me make my Christmas extra special and bringing back a lot of great memories for my family!

Enjoy the rest of the holiday season and have a happy New Year!

The cake was called an Ice Box Cake, it was chocolate, whipped cream icing, chocolate shavings on top, and cherries. My birthday was in July, however the bakery did not make these cakes till the fall and winter. I waited till October or November to have my birthday cake because this was the best thing ever. I am sorry to hear of your uncles passing. I have tried searching for years for the cake and recipe, to no avail.

I have such wonderful memories of Schillings bakery. I dated a boy in high school whose mother Ann Rutledge worked at the bakery. I think I sampled and loved everything at your bakery. Today my sons in laws live in the Cheltenham area and they also went to your bakery. Please let me know when the new bakery will be open for business.

My name is Leo McDonough.I am now 80 years old. My family was very close with the Schilling family in the 40s and 50s and I worked for Martha Schilling at the bakery at 50th and Haverford ave.in Phila making all the ice cream and assisting the baker. Martha had 3 childern. Albert, Irma and ?. Also a sister who lived with her. Martha was a widow. They all lived in Langhorne after the bakery closed. I have lost touch with them but would like to contact anyone of them now at this very late point of my life. As a note, many of the receipes for the ice creaam were very secret but I still remember them well. Anyone knowing where the new bakery is located, I would be most greatful for the information. P.S. A wonderful, wonderful family!!!

Joseph, I have been searching for a Philly Butter Cake recipe that is as close to authentic as one can get without going to Philadelphia. However, they just never seem to quite hit the mark. I was wondering since your post is from 2009 and I am not sure if you will see this comment here, I was wondering if your business took off and if so do you by chance ship items outside of PA? I live in Northern Alabama now and I really do miss these cakes and sticky buns. Please drop me a line to my email address; fithianp5@yahoo.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

Have you tried the german philadelphia butter cake recipe? I've found it to be just like the cake we used to get from Kaltenbach's bakery in Scranton, PA.

Growing up in Scranton, I worked in a German bakery that had been around since the 30's or 40's. Mrs. Kaltenbach, the owner, also made a Philadelphia Butter Cake - same as you described but rectangle-shaped. She died in the late 80's and her recipes and the shop went with her.O
Then, in the mid-90's I happened into a bakery in New Hope (Peddler's Village) and I saw a cake that looked strikingly similar to my long-lost "butter cake" ... they called it something else and it had fruit mixed in with the buttery topping.. but there it was.
Definitely an interesting life and travels for the Philadelphia Butter Cake.
Growing up in Southside I wonder if I ever saw you at Kaltenbachs. I have such find memories of Southside, especially the mom and pop stores on Ceder and Pittston Avenues. I have been searching, since Mrs Kaltenbachs passesd for a treat so good as her "meltaway ring". I know she gave her reciepies to a family member (or at least he claims to have them), and when my family asks for the meltaway recipe, he says "sure, I'll get it for you" but he never does. It is rumored that when she died she wished that the reciepies never be given out. Anyone know of a pastry like the melt away ring?

My grandmother lived in the Southside, on Rear Pittston Avenue, did you know any Cierkowski's? My uncle Stanley was a baker at Kaltenbach's, he had the recipes but has also passed on. I'll see if my aunt (his sister) got them from him, as she was quite the baker herself.
