Is anyone familiar with the old Hough Bakeries in the Cleveland area? The amazing lady that made my wedding cake a few years ago used to work for them for years and her cake is the best I have ever had but I can't for the life of me figure out what flavors she uses. Just curious if anyone may know the secret lol

I googled it and this is all I can find:

Hough Bakery Icing
From: "muffin"

I saw on your web page that you were looking for recipes for
hough bakery. this MAY help.

I was given a recipe , many years ago, for their cake frosting.
the original recipe was for 200 servings, & this one is cut down
to 3 (from that recipe). I don't have the original 200 serving one.

this tastes pretty darn good,like I remember, is NOT perfect,, but
pretty close. it also tastes BETTER if it sits overnight before using.

1 1/2 lb powdered sugar
1 3/8 oz. milk powder
66 grains salt
12 oz. shortening
7 oz. corn syrup
4 3/4 oz. water
vanilla : unknown quantity

You might get a response by writing one of the editors of the 'taste' section of the Cleveland "Plain Dealer." If you manage to catch their interest, they may be able to contact those who kept the recipes when the bakery closed down. The recipes are out there, the trick is finding the people who have them.

While googling for something else, I came across what I thought was a website, but it took me to a Facebook page for a baker who used to work for Hough Bakery and now has his own bakery! He might share a few tips with you. Hope this helps.
