Puerto Vallarta - Banderas Bay's favorite bakery, Pie in the Sky, has been the Bay's choice for the finest cakes, pies and other sweet treats for over 21 years. For this Mother's Day, select from a variety of yummy cakes in an assortment of flavors and colors.
|Show Mom how much you care this year with a special Mother's Day Cake or an incredibly rich and satisfying soft-centered chocolate "Beso" from Banderas Bay's favorite bakery, Pie in the Sky.|
Then make your cake as unique as your Mother by adding a personalized message. Whether "I Love You" or "Thank You," say it on top of a delicious cake from Pie in the Sky.
Using only the finest natural ingredients, many of them imported from around the world, sets Pie in the Sky apart from other local bakeries. Each item is lovingly handmade from scratch and does not include any trans-fats.
Their dedication to using only the freshest natural ingredients and their attention to quality and customer service is why Pie in the Sky has been selected by residents and tourists alike as the Bay's "Best Bakery" for the past five years in the Lifestyles Magazine Reader's Choice Awards.
Pie in the Sky was founded in 1987 in La Cruz de Huanacaxtle on Banderas Bay's north shore, when the original owners started baking pies to raise money to fix their marooned sailboat. Using classic, family heirloom recipes, soon the Pie in the Sky product line expanded to include cakes, cookies, and the now legendary "Beso," an incredibly rich and satisfying soft-centered chocolate brownie.
In 1998, Pie in the Sky was bought by Susan Drexler and Philip J. Price, a couple from the San Francisco Bay Area. Together with their son Scott Miller, Executive Chef of Market Hall Catering and Cactus Taqueria in Oakland and Berkeley, California, they introduced additional gourmet items while maintaining the quality and integrity of the original Pie in the Sky product line.
Today, a dedicated staff of artisan bakers, under the direction of Manuela Guerrero Esparza with 17 years experience as the bakery's pastry chef, turns out fresh baked goodies every day.
Their delicious cakes, pies, cupcakes, muffins, coffee, tea and their famous triple-chocolate "Besos," with their molten-fudge center, are available daily at two convenient locations: Heroe de Nacozari #202 in Bucerias (open from 8 am to 10 pm) and at Lázaro Cardenas #247 (at the corner of Avenida Vallarta - open from 9 am to 10 pm) in Puerto Vallarta. Come discover all of the delectable offerings of Pie in the Sky where you can taste the difference when only quality ingredients are used.
