Even though everyone seems to have a different idea of how paska is properly made, the head baker at Old Church Bakery says it is an incredibly popular product leading up to Easter weekend.

Julie Ellis says people tend to be very particular about most holiday baking, but paska seems to be especially close to the heart.

"Everybody remembers the way their oma or their mom made it and they want it to be exactly like that. That is kind of my favourite thing about holiday baking is that it brings back memories from their childhood, so when you eat it, it brings back a real nostalgic moment of your past."

Ellis says those memories often spur on really neat stories about grandparents and parents. She says the biggest point of contention is always whether or not paska should have raisins in it, but there is one thing that most people agree upon.

"Paska has to have the cheesy oma sprinkles on it, the stars or the butterflies or the flowers, it can't have those little round ones, it has to have those specific ones. If it doesn't have the sprinkles, people have something to say about it."

Ellis says leading into the Easter season she likes to ask people what they want, then compiles what she hears to make something that almost everyone can enjoy.
