Apple Streudel for "German-Themed Video Game Shindig" 8th birthday party?

I knew you'd be curious ;)

So....our wacky chowpup has requested a "German-themed Videogame Shindig" for his 8th birthday party. Go figure. It was about time he chose t honor our half-Austrian roots. The wursts, homemade kraut, Bavarian pretzels, beer, Rieslings, cheese boards, Wii and Xbox-shaped sugar cookies etc have all been sorted out. I have zero desire to bake a streudel. I was thinking the apple crumb at La Cheesecake, however I thing a warm streudel with vanilla ice cream might be nicer.

Any suggestions?

  1. I have no desire to bake a strudel either. How about Andre's Hungarian in Rego Park/Forest Hills?

      Thanks, Miss Needle :) I actually just spoke with a German baker at Stork's here in Whitestone. Although it is not the fantabulous Stork's of my youth, I think it just might work out :) If not, I will call Andre's.

    2. Just another suggestion, Zabar's has excellent fresh streudel. We recently came back from a trip to Eastern Europe and we had Apple Streudel in both Vienna and Budapest.

        I second the Zabar's suggestion. Sounds like a great party--and a great kid!

      2. It's been a long time since I've been there and they sometimes change their bakery suppliers, but I thing that Eagle Provisions had apple strudel at their deli counter. Call to check. Although you have a purveyor for your other stuff, Eagle also a variety of wursts and barrel kraut.
