A recipe for success!

Every birthday needs a cake! And in our case our board members, Tina-Maria Vlantoussi-Kaeser and Thomas Kaeser baked many small cakes for all employees worldwide. In the traditional rooms of the Coburg court supplier Feyler, unique cherry gingerbreads were created based on an innovative recipe. Specially developed for Kaeser! Diligent hands wrapped the finished birthday gingerbreads and sent them all over the world.
