BROOKLINE (KDKA) — At Party Cake Shop in Brookline, bakers spent all night Monday into Tuesday churning out treats for Mardi Gras.

Early Tuesday morning, they were working on donuts before switching back to Pączki.

The owners of the bakery told KDKA’s Nicole Ford that they’ve already made 297 dozen of the pastries.

They started baking at 6:15 p.m. on Monday and plan to bake through 3 p.m. on Tuesday.

They say they will make 240 more, for a grand total of 6,444 Pączki.

“The dough is much denser than a regular doughnut dough. After we flip them, we have to put weight on them to submerge them in the grease, so the whole thing fries throughout the ball of dough,” said one baker at Party Cake Shop.

They will come in a variety of flavors, some of the most popular being white buttercream and custard.

When the time comes to fill the pastries, they pick the flavor, hold them up, and a machine fills them.

In addition to pączki, they plan on making over 120 dozen donuts as well.

“I have been here before where they are out the door, so we will come out and sit on the street, but when the sign said open, I said, ‘Oh, yeah, I’m going in,” said BJ Kasprack, who bought pączkis on Fat Tuesday.
