Ray handling mail order kringleWhen satisfying your Kringle craving or celebrating a special occasion with a delicious hand-crafted cake, you can’t skip our mouthwatering and decadent baked goods.  How can you get your hands on a selection of our pastries if you don’t live close to our O&H bakeries in Racine, Wisconsin?  Just as our great-grandfather adjusted to living in a new country in the early 1920s, we have adapted our baking practices to include an easy ordering system and delivery service to meet our customers’ demand for yummy, high-quality pastries, cakes, and Kringles-throughout the world.

Ordering baked goods from our online bakery means that you no longer need to spend precious time wondering, ‘can you send baked goods through the mail?’ Instead, you can spend that time browsing our assortment of quality scratch-made baking and select your favorite flavor for us to deliver straight to your doorstep.  Our family stands-by our delivery with our guarantee, meaning it arrives fresh, right to your door.  And in the unlikely chance it doesn’t arrive quite right - we’ll make it right!  Call us old fashioned but that is exactly what our parents taught us.

We use the finest ingredients from around the world and authentic Danish recipes passed down through the generations to create our delicious collection of treats.  Our commitment to quality baking, excellent customer service, and helping everyone to celebrate life with a slice of goodness are evident in our delicious, time-honored sweet delights, whether you pick up fresh at our store or have your choice sent to you in the mail.

What Are the Best Baked Goods to Mail?

We’re all about quality and we want you to enjoy our bakery, just as our local customers do.  We’ve been taking customers orders and delivering via mail since the late 1960’s, so we guarantee they still taste great, no matter where you live throughout the United States, including to Alaska and Hawaii, as well as most international locations.  Our extensive assortment of Danish delights travels exceptionally well, including our decadent Kringle pastries, Danish Layer Cakes, Crown Cakes, and Coffee Cakes.


We create our Kringles with decadent, flaky pastry that we roll out and rest over three consecutive days.  This patient approach results in a light, rich, buttery, and crispy pastry dough that beautifully holds our homemade fillings.  Our large, oval-shaped Kringle ensures that there is enough to go around when you share these Danish delights with friends.

Best served at room temperature or warmed slightly in the oven, there is minimal fuss involved in getting a Kringle ready to eat.  They also freeze and thaw well, so you can easily save a portion of your Kringle pastry for another occasion.

Danish Layer Cake

We ship our layer cakes frozen in an insulated container with dry ice to ensure that they arrive looking as stunning as when they left our store and tasting just as a gourmet treat should.  Leave your cake to thaw at room temperature for up to six hours, then delight in the moist cake and soft and creamy icing.

Danish Coffee Cakes

Made from authentic family recipes, our Danish Crown and Coffee Cakes are the perfect sweet treats to have on hand for any celebration, office gathering, or unexpected visit from guests.  Our moist bundt cakes and crumbly streusel-topped desserts both freeze well for up to five months, so you can order at any time and store treats away for the right moment.  We take care to package our cakes well for delivery so that you can enjoy every last crumb of your nutty, fruity, or chocolate-flavored treat.

How Do You Keep Baked Goods Fresh for Shipping?

FreshShip Delivery GuaranteeWe guarantee excellent quality with our baked goods right down to the last bite, which is why we create our goodness using traditional baking methods taught by our grandparents, then send the treats to you with fast shipping and excellent packaging.  We know that you are eager to nibble on your O&H pastries and want to ensure that they arrive fresh at your doorstep-that’s why we provide a Fresh Ship guarantee.  Our products are sent directly from our Wisconsin bakery to your location in the fastest way possible by car, truck, or plane.

To make certain that our Danish layer cake with its smooth and creamy frosting and filling arrives looking tremendous and tasting fresh, we send our handmade and hand-decorated delights frozen in an insulated container.  We mail these items on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday so that you are sure to receive your decadent treat by the weekend, leaving you plenty of time to thaw the cake before serving it at your special occasion.

We work with the best delivery services in the world, including FedEx, to make sure that your pastry reaches its destination fast and fresh.  For most orders, we can have pastries, cakes, and cookies delivered within two business days.

How Do I Send Pastries in the Mail?
