Getting off the I-90 eastbound on the Belmont ramp, one notices a variety of local and national businesses. The local fruit shop, the gym, and the gasoline station are all familiar sites. One of the spots that may appear to blend into the background packs a treasure of sweet, delicious treats hailing from Mexican tradition with a contemporary touch.
Panadería Azucar, located on Belmont Avenue slightly west of Kimball Avenue, is one of Avondale's most-discussed panaderías, or bakeries. The creative mastermind behind this local delight, Sandy Cakes, is a well-known figure in her community. Some of the diverse activities she engages with are community toy drives for local children, bringing awareness to autism and how it affects youth, and the need to empower young minds through education.
Sandy's generous heart and altruistic joie d'etre is respectable. Azucar, which employs members from the local community, strives to make a difference in the hearts of the people. Their mission is to provide high-quality pastries while also making a positive impact in their surroundings.
Customers from diverse parts of Chicago arrived to Azucar days before Día de Reyes on January 6th to pre-order their rosca and ensure that they would have a chance to bask in this mouth-watering delight.
Our question to you is: who was lucky enough to get the baby in their piece of rosca de reyes and where is the decadent feast taking place?
Panadería Azucar, located at 3415 W. Belmont Avenue, is a local treat so sweet that PdM expects nothing but success in the near future.
