Eating doughnuts on Fat Tuesday

POTTSVILLE, SCHUYLKILL COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) Fat Tuesday means a busy day for bakers.     Bakers were up all night making doughnuts at Bake Shop VI in Pottsville. Hot and fresh faschnauts were flying off the shelves today. The bakery made the Italian version of the doughnut --  called bombolini. It's a lighter version of the doughnut, which is tossed in a citrus sugar.


"Crazy! We've been up since 2 a.m. making dough, frying dough, now selling dough. We pre sold about 13 dozen doughnuts. Now we're hoping we sell out," said Brian Setlock, owner.

The bakers say it's a busy week all around. With today being Fat Tuesday, and tomorrow being Valentine's day.... there's a lot to bake and make! The bakery is also making chocolate covered strawberries and truffles.
