About:
Ana and her family wanted to start a dessert business of their own so in November 2002, we applied for a license to bake out of a commercial kitchen and started to offer homemade style baklava (see below) and bundt cakes to local delicatessens and coffee shops. As business grew, we added new items to the list such as 19 different flavors of premium cheesecakes, flourless tortes, tiramisu, tres leches, and deluxe carrot cakes. Now, we not only sell to local restaurants and country clubs but use our desserts for fundraisers that are offered to schools, churches, and any non-profit organizations that need to raise money.

Ana’s cakes have been well accepted by the community for their premium quality and freshness. We use only the finest ingredients to make our desserts.

We deliver all the desserts from our commercial, fully licensed, approved and insured kitchen to your door for your convenience..
The Story of Ana’s Baklava

Ana’s grandparents were born and raised in Bethlehem until they moved to the Americas in the early nineteen hundreds. Ana’s maternal grandmother gave her eldest daughter the family recipe for baklava. The recipe for this Middle Eastern delicacy was in turn passed on to Ana from her own mother.

Ana’s family recipe is unique in that it differentiates itself from other Middle Eastern and Greek-style baklava that relies on a lot of heavy honey. Ana’s baklava instead uses a lighter honey and spice syrup.

Today, Ana’s Cakes and Pastries makes its baklava using only the finest pure Colorado Rocky Mountain honey with flavor enhancing spices poured over layers of real buttered Athens® fillo dough and crushed California walnuts then baked to a golden perfection at the foot of America’s mountain, Pikes Peak.

Neither too sweet nor too sticky, Ana’s baklava is just right. After your first bite of this delicious treat you will find you can’t resist the temptation of coming back for more!

About Us:
The majestic Rocky Mountains…long before cowboys, wagon trains, and gold rushes the Rocky Mountains were a vast and unknown territory. Imagine the many generations of people that have journeyed through its rugged terrain.

Beginning in the early 1800’s, adventuresome beaver trappers and traders explored this expansive wilderness, encountered American Indians, and built Forts that still stand today. They were the first from the East to see the Rockies and the lands from the plains to the Pacific. Theirs was a life of wild, exciting, and perilous existence.

During this time, it was not uncommon for the fur traders to carry a supply of rum with them wherever they went. Not only was it used for trading, but for cooking too. One legend has it that on a cold winter’s night, one of these mountain men was enjoying some cake but found it to be too dry. So, he doused it with some of the rum he had been drinking. It was so good he later developed a method of immersing the cakes in rum syrup and used it for trading at outposts all along the Rocky Mountains.

We hope you’ll enjoy our Rocky Mountain Rum Cakes®. Born from a centuries-old handcrafted recipe and perfected with the finest ingredients, each cake is still made the old-fashioned way – in small batches. Every bite takes you back to when the West was wild and the mountain men of the fur trade roamed free.
