Boogie Down Bites: Ronald Pitusa Bakery

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

A Bronx bakery has a reputation for its elaborate cake decorating.

Ronald Pitusa Bakery on White Plains Road has been open for nearly 20 years.

Owner Jesus Balderas even employs his 13-year-old nephew Fernando Rodriguez  to help make everything from superhero birthday cakes to eye-catching wedding cakes.

Both Balderas and his nephew consider cake decorating an art.

Rodriguez says he hopes to one day open his own cake decorating shop and follow in the footsteps of his uncle.
