A trendy bakery is opening on Queens Blvd. at the former location of Sonali Cuisine.
The store, to be called Pink Icing, will be located at 44-13 Queens Blvd.
Juan Arache, a Sunnyside resident, already owns the Sugar Room that is located on the same block at 44-21 Queens Blvd. Arache said that Pink Icing will be a bakery that will provide cookies, cupcakes, cakes, pies and much more.
The Sugar Room has been in Sunnyside for the past 10 years and offers baking supplies and classes.
Arache has designed cakes for celebrities and dignitaries, including the President of the Dominican Republic Leonel Fernandez, Denis Leary, star of the TV show Rescue Me, Latin singer José José, and Mariah Carey. He has worked for some of the best pastry shops in New York, including the Cup Cake Café and the Little Pie Company.
Arache said that he expects the store to be open in two to three months, since there is a great deal of renovation to be done and several permits will need to be obtained.
