HILDA & SASHARI MELENDEZ
PASTRY CHEF, PROFESSIONAL BAKER, ENTREPRENUERS
The story behind Bleu Royale Cakes is of sisters Hilda and Sashari Melendez. Like so many other baking stories, this one, too, began at home. Hilda had been baking professionally at home for over five years. After Sashari graduated from college, the two joined forces to open a bakery. Their Tres Leches cake jars are one of their most popular items, among other Puerto Rican desserts. Sashari and Hilda use all-natural ingredients sourced directly from the island of Puerto Rico. Their bakes good are authentic; they travel to the island for guava, local vanilla, and other ingredients that make their cakes and pastries authentic.
Hilda is the baker, while Sashari runs the store front and handles customer service. Bleu Royale Cakes specializes in baked goods, custom cakes for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, baby showers, and much more. They make deliveries to all five boroughs, and if you stop by Bleu Royale, you can order a fresh cup of coffee, cookies, cupcakes, muffins, pastries, and cake slices! The sisters recently opened a second shop, Royale Sweets and Supplies, on Rockaway Blvd. Royale Sweets and Supplies is the place for cake decorating supplies, ready-to-go cakes, sweets, and much more.
