Fred J. Pollman is the third-generation owner of Mobile’s Pollman’s Bake Shop, which has been in business for 100 years.

The bakery has a sweet selection of cookies, doughnuts, cakes and other treats, as well as sandwiches, breads and savory offerings.

Perhaps its most over-the-top creation is the Dobash Cake. Chocolate cake is layered with chocolate liqueur pudding and iced in chocolate before being coated in chocolate. A praline topping crowns the creation.

“It’s a very delicious chocolate delight cake,” Pollman said. “It’s my recipe, but I guess you could say it’s in the family.”
