COPPERAS COVE — Heidi’s German Bakery isn’t a big place, and it doesn’t have a large staff. But with near nonstop baking the cozy shop will turn out more than 10,000 cookies, plus cakes, pastries, pies and other various Christmas-themed specialties this yuletide season — and that’s in addition to the standard fare of breads, cheesecakes and other baked goods regularly offered.
On a weekday morning the bakery is a study in perpetual motion, with longtime German-born employee Carola Learn taking phone orders, wrapping platters full of freshly baked cookies and handling walk-in customers. Owner and master baker Ralph Spriggs is at home catching some much-needed sleep, while his mother, Margit, cuts cake portions and artfully arranges delicacies on serving plates.
