The bakery is open!

Update: As of Sept 2016 this bakery has closed this location. We are awaiting details to see if they are opening in a different location.

We have been awaiting the opening of this bakery and showroom for Dulce Antojo and the waiting is over! This bakery has been in Playa Del Carmen for over three years now except it was one of the best kept secrets because they did not have a showroom for the public and it was only known by word of mouth. They were always busy doing beautiful wedding cakes and dessert tables for parties that they did not have a storefront. Now they are expanding and adding more services and sweets for you.

Meet Abner Manzanilla, he is the owner and creative mind behind all the creations at Dulce Antojo. From an early age he loved baking and for the past 10 years he has been training, taking classes and perfecting his skills all to fulfill his fantasy of making amazing cakes and desserts. Abner speaks both fluent English and Spanish.

The latest achievement is to open this storefront at the corner of 25th Avenue ad 6th Street where you can buy small desserts. You can also consult about cakes and dessert tables for all kinds of occasions.

One of their amazing cakes.

Below are some samples of tarts for sale in the bakery and the signature cake in a jar creation of Abner. They come with a nice bow and spoon. This make great cakes for on the go or at a party because they are individual serving and if you are outside it is covered. They are currently experimenting with different flavors for these.

Some of the other small cakes in the bakery that you can get are hazelnut and walnut mouse cake, mini Oreo cheesecakes, mini carrot cake with a layer of praline pecan candy with cream cheese frosting and cupcakes of assorted flavors.

      Hello. We will forward your request to the bakery itself. We are only the website that made an article about the bakery. They should be able to make a great cake for you. We hope you have an great anniversary here in Playa!

  2. Hello,
    Can you please confirm if this bakery is still trading as we tried to place an order directly with them for my parents 50th anniversary in December, and after quoting us, we got an email saying they were unable to do our cake as they are moving, yet you still list them ???

    • Hello Samantha

      We have emailed them as well to see what they are doing but have not heard back. We will put a note on the article that they have moved from their current location and we do not have further details. We do like to keep everything up to date on the site. All of this happened just in the past few weeks and we have been trying to find out what is going on. We hope you are able to get your cake done for your parents.
