Enchanted Bakery Is a Dream Come True

Thirteen years ago, Ana Gonzalez wanted to start her own bakery. She had been working from home making cakes for friends and family, but always wanted to have a set location for a shop.

In 2008, Ana decided to open up cake sales to the public. She started “Pasteleria Crystal,” baking cakes out of the basement of her home in Hastings, Nebraska. Ana and her sister Veronica delivered the cakes, and customers also dropped by to pick up their order.
