ANA MARIA BAKESHOP
Hibbard Avenue, Dumaguete City
What began as a small hobby turned into a full time business for the proprietor of Ana Maria Bakeshop. For someone who really loved to cook and bake, she started out accepting orders from family and friends. Soon, more and more requests were coming in and before she even knew it, her kitchen was already getting too small for her growing business.
Ana Maria’s specialty is the Chocolate Cookie Monster cake, a super rich moist chocolate that simply melts in your mouth. Others swear by their chocolate fudge bars and nangka bars, both of which can be bought by piece or pack. Ana Maria also accepts orders for birthday and wedding cakes and cakes for other occassions. Choose from a huge catalogue of the classical or the trendy.
You can visit Ana Maria at any of these four branches:
