The Heilbronn-Böckingen based baker, Emil Kerner, started making and selling the classic red confections in his café as early as 1930. When the bakery relocated to Öhringen in 1933 it was a given that Emil would continue to sell these traditional goodies at his new location as well. He even expanded the range with exciting new shapes and colors.
Following the tradition, the Kerner family still produces all of their sugar bunnies according to traditional family recipes, with the original antique cast molds and exclusively by hand. Since 2007 the Kerners have been traveling to German museums and Easter markets to demonstrate this old craft and to revive nostalgia.
