Pink Icing, the bakery that opened earlier this month at 44-13 Queens Blvd., is no longer affiliated with Juan Arache from the Sugar Room.
The bakery, which was Arache’s concept, was run as a partnership between Arache and Raul Jimenez, who has been a baker for about two decades. However, the two men had a disagreement and Arache extricated himself from the business last Wednesday. Arache has not been doing any baking at the store since then.
Meanwhile, Jimenez, who seemed disappointed by Arache’s departure, said that he is now the sole owner and that it will be business as usual. He said Arache didn’t want to be part of the business since it was too tiring for him to run two businesses.
Arache said he will now focus solely on the Sugar Room.
