I recently took a trip to Racine Bakery in Chicago to watch this treat, known as Lithuanian wedding cake, being made. Raguolis is also served on special occasions like Easter and Christmas Eve. Dana Kapacinskas, the owner of the bakery, and her staff of 40 make hundreds for the holidays and ship them all over the United States.
Take a look at how Racine Bakery makes Lithuanian tree cake and watch this video of sakotis being made before an open fire in Lithuania.
