This little Colombian storefront in Jackson Heights bakes up a range of sweet and savory treats: cakes, pies, breads, pastilles and hot empanadas as well as made-to-order wedding cakes. Along with tiramisu and creamy cheesecake, the glass cases display a selection of small, thin squares of yellow cake folded over dollops of dulce de leche, and flaky, miniature guava pies dusted with coconut. The white cake--fluffy and moist, layered with dulce de leche and white frosting--moves fast by the slice. Capping off their dollar-or-less, bite-sized desserts, the shop also pours a strong espresso.
