“I really have a passion for what I do,” Gallardo said.

But it is one thing to print on paper, it is totally different to conceive an idea of a cake on a paper and actually be able to execute it. Gallardo is one of those bakers who can make it happen.
In addition to being an experienced baker with a passion for design, Gallardo also prides himself in offering his customers everything fresh.
“At Aurelio’s we do bake fresh. Never frozen,” he declared.
