Join us for a tour of the sweet bread of Mexico, Latin and South America as we take a new pastry each week to discuss and share history, our favorites, and other fun facts! Call store for availability.
In some of our pastries we have an identity crisis not knowing whether to call them by their Spanish or English name! This yummy delight just rolls better right off your tongue in English.
Nor is it originating in Mexico – the cinnamon roll is said to have been first made in Sweden, where it also contains a hint of cardamom. It has gained popularity in Mexico, similar to the US, with the commercial company Bimbo stocking pre-packaged varieties in groceries and convenience stores.
Our take on this Saturday morning favorite is not a heap of glaze, but rather a long soak in a delicious rum sauce. Hmmm..maybe we should keep going on the path to soaking in tequila!
