Welcome to Carl's Bakery.
There's Carla, she's been waking up before the sun since she was in the 6th grade to help at her father's bakery.
Then, there is Dave.
He joined the family baking team after falling in love and marrying the lady behind the counter, which was Carla.
I arrived at the shop at 3:30 a.m.
They had already been there for hours getting the dough ready for me.
Rolling, cutting, it's a labor of love.
Next, the donuts went into this box, I can't remember the name.
The box made them soft and fluffy.
Now we fry them up.
Make sure to at lots of creamy glaze.
You can visit Carl's Bakery in East Peoria, Tuesday through Saturday, 5: 30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.
