When Wolfgang Büchler came to Washington from Heidelberg, Germany, he couldn't speak a word of English and never imagined he would be designing cakes for Presidents, Ambassadors and so many of the wonderful people living in the DC area.
Although Wolfgang and his wife Carla have been innovating since 1975, success has not come easy. When they brought Crusty, European-style breads made with imported flour to Washington in the 1970's, customers returned the breads, thinking they were stale. "I gave them their money back," said Wolfgang. "Today, Washington demands our authentic breads, and we are constantly developing new recipes to meet their tastes."
Now serving a second generation of customers, the couple has made a lasting impact on the culture of the Capital City. "When you bake a couple's wedding cake, they want everything to be perfect," said Carla Büchler. "Now we are making cakes for some of those couple's children." Heidelberg customers tend to come back, year after year.
"Our bakery is very important to me. I met Carla when I hired her to work in the store. Now, I have my children working with me. What can I say, but success is sweet."
