What's the Status of Stasi Bakery in Corona?

It closed.
It reopened by Leo's.
It closed? ....I haven't been in a while. Is it around anymore? What's the scoop?

At my dad's party last week at Parkside we were served the most unbelievable cannoli cake. Seriously outrageous. Tender cake and thick layers of subtly sweetened dense cannoli cream with a showering of chocolate chips that was enrobed in a light layer of unsweetened whipped cream. EVERY ONE of our relatives (many Sicilians who know a thing or two about cannoli, I might add) asked where we had gotten it. It was THAT good. I thought I remembered Alfredo telling me at my son's one year party two years ago that Stasi made their cakes, so bigmouth that I am, I told all my relatives this. They have been calling info etc and can't locate Stasi apparently. I have to call and find if the cake was made on the premises at Parkside which I'm starting to think, however this all got me thinking about Stasi.

We must have eaten at Parkside over 100 times and had everthing on their menu, but nothing was ever as great as this particular cannoli cake. Such a simple thing, but it was a revelation.

All Good Things,
