10 Latinx-Owned and Latinx-Inspired Shops to Satisfy Your Summer Sweet Tooth

1.) Mexi Sprinkles

Looking for a gorgeous addition to otherwise boring cupcakes or cookies? Want to uphold a Latinx-inspired theme? From tacos and guac to pan dulce and Mazapán, Mexi Sprinkles has got you covered. They also just dropped a Selena mix, purple sprinkles with wonderful odes to the singer's makeup line and signature bedazzled microphone.

The mixes come in a variety of available sizes, and last up to 18 months. Gluten free mixes are available.

2.) AliciasDelicias

I honed my skills in the cake world by creating birthday and wedding cakes for friends and family. Competitions soon followed and I became an award winning cake designer. Cakes was where I was most comfortable and what I originally set out to do.

However; after establishing myself in San Diego, getting married and having my first child, cake art soon evolved into cookie art and AliciasDelicias was born. I have been thoroughly enjoying building my cookie business these last 5 years. Cookie art has given me the canvas I have always wanted - the ability to showcase my painting skills, my culture, and most importantly, my passion for art.

Cookies vary in size and cost. Email for inquiries.
