2. Chimney Cake Festival

2014. október 1.

It’s October again, and it brings us to the 2. Chimney Cake Festival. Lots of exciting programs, superb chimney cakes, specialities and the Guinness Records are waiting for you by a mesmerizing place. You’ll be amazed between the 10th and 12th of October by the fairytale-like Vajdahunyad Castle.

One of the main features of the 2. Chimney Cake Festival is the place itself: this year we are spreading already, we will be present by the mythical, fabulous and spacious Vajdahunyad Castle.

More stands will present more than just the classic flavours – walnut, vanilla, cinnamon, coconut -, and the lacto, gluten and sugar free cakes. You will be able to try our special treats too, as we have just tested the coffee flavoured chimney cake, but the cakes will be available in other flavours too, such as poppy seed, granola, citrus, prune, orange and many more. Of course, we will bake the chimney bearings, creamy kurtos and the chocolate drop chimney cakes as well.



The patron this year will be Anita Nardai – as part of the Hungarian Baker Association -, who is hard at work to make chimney cake a real “Hungaricum” (A Hungarian legacy).

The tasty event will definitely be a special one, as we are hoping to break records and get into the Hungarian Guinness Record Books. Last year, the Big Bake-off helped us achieve great numbers with 52 teams, 105 people and more than 300 cakes.

If you are interested to take part, you can still register your team on the following link: http://www.kurtoskalacsfesztival.hu/kozos-sutes.

As well as the traditional concerts and children’s programs, the unique improvisational modern performing arts group – Lorant Andras Group – will take stage; also will perform Marton Simon and Kristof Horvath with some slam poetry.



There will be a star cavalcade: Vanda Dombovari will be the Big Bake-off host.

“I haven’t always had a sweet tooth, but since my son, Gergo was born, I eat confectionery all the time. Whenever I go to a festival or to the market, I make sure I bag a chimney cake. I can see my son loves its taste too. He eats the chimney cakes with such joy, that I now need to think about making some at home, as this is now not impossible at all” – says Vanda Dombovari, the host of this year’s festival, who likes experimenting and enjoys trying new flavours – and the citrus flavour got around her completely.

The same goes with Heni Der as well, if she enjoys the taste that will turn into an everlasting love. The popular singer prefers the classic cakes, although she tried our new, coffee flavoured chimney cake, and she found it to be delicious.

“In Vojvodina although the Hungarians know the chimney cake, it still didn’t get acclimatized. I will be happy to be the chimney cake ambassador in the future, and will make sure I’ll help popularize it in the area. I’ve got the chimney cake “fever” since I live in Hungary, and I’m glad I had the opportunity to try the mobile baking set, which makes chimney cake baking super easy. I’m pretty sure I will be experimenting with this at home, as once the dough is ready and the coal is burning fine, the chimney cake is ready in about 5 minutes, which I would have never thought. I’m an insister in all parts of life; therefore I vote for the classic flavours like sugar, vanilla, however I have tried the coffee flavour too, and I really enjoyed it.” – laughed Heni, who will perform on the 11th of October by the Vajdahunyad Castle.

Although Tibor Gyurcsik is careful of what he eats, but the singer from Dunajska Streda still enjoys the Transylvanian delicacy. Tibi will perform on Saturday just before Heni Der, and he told us: one of his favourite is the chocolate-orange chimney cake. “One of the best things on the World is the chimney cake. There is no flavour I wouldn’t like. There is only one problem: I put on some weight and the Slovakian management advised me to go on a diet. But I will definitely eat my favourite, the cocoa flavoured chimney cake.”

The 2. Chimney Cake Festival will be just as colourful as last year; there won’t be a lack of any kinds of programs, tasty, special cakes and much novelty. For example, we will present you our Sekler Cake Franchise program, too.

Many of you came to us from all over the World, and told us, that you’d love to learn chimney cake baking, as you’ve familiarized yourself with the yummy cake through our charity kayak tour or on a visit to Budapest.

Not long ago, requests from Egypt, Canada and Columbia came in; therefore our goal now is to spread the Vitez Kurtos franchise. For this reason we now complete or Know How with a user guide, recipe and an educational program too, so the chimney cake baking won’t be a Hungarian privilege anymore – whether it is your hobby or you’d like to go professional. We certainly won’t let go off your hands, but will help you with advice, so you can be a successful chimney cake baker.

So, the second weekend of October we will be waiting for you – on the 2. Chimney Cake Festival, Vajdahunyad Castle - with lots of love and tasty cakes. Come and learn how to make a lovely chimney cake in the “Do it yourself” tent.

With lots of love,
Team Vitez Kurtos
