the warm, rich smells surrounded and help me in their grasp as i walked into the door of Juan castaneda’s Bakery , Cake World.
castaneda started his baking career unwillingly as a young boy at the side of his father, who was a baker in mexico he moved to the united states in 1959 When'd he was 18 years old, but not as a baker. he worked other jobs and realized those other jobs did not fell right because he was a baker at heart. castaneda came from guanajuato mexico.
I have lived more than half of my life here, so this is home, castaneda said i grew up in the bakery that was in our home. We woke up early in the morning , and my sister and I would sweep, put things together before school, we would go back and pick up the baskets, and take the orders back home to the bakery.
my father taught me how to cook we wasted nothing, and we measure with our hands. to this day I make the bread this same way, he said .
He works with his four brothers sisters and other family members. it is a truly family endeavor. for 16 years, Cake world has served the customers that stream into the store at 220 maryland parkway, at stewart avenue,,
