Alfajores and cakes are my life.
— Andrea Nicole Leiva, Founder & Lead Baker of Dulceology


On a summer day as I was browsing through books to read I came across an old notebook filled with handwritten recipes written by my grandmother. In it contained several dessert recipes she herself had learned or made up. As I continued to browse through its pages I came across a page with the title: "Alfajores".  I don't remember what it was in this page that called out to me but it stood out from the rest. Then just barely 18, I put myself up to the task, gathered ingredients and began to bake the cookie that changed my life.

That day I fell in love. I just couldn't wait for everyone in the house to try my creation and sense my newfound obsession with the Alfajor cookie. Soon after I started to give them as gifts to my friends, teachers and my parent's coworkers. It was my own personal way of showing teachers and friends I appreciated them. I would come home after classes and would bake on every free moment I could. In 2012 I opened my Etsy shop with the help of my sister and began my baking journey continuing to specialize in Argentinian Alfajores.

Thank you for visiting my online shop and for your continued support!

If there is anything I can bake for you I am only an email or call away,
