Larchmont resident Ana Fabrizio has moved from place to place, never quite finding the right fit until she moved to the village five years ago.
Larchmont is such a peaceful place to live with the friendliest people too, Fabrizio explained, I just felt like it was the right place for me to be.
In 2010, Fabrizio began baking and designing cakes out of her home with a business called, Desserts by Ana. Fabrizio began just by baking designer cakes and bringing them to various birthday parties and other celebratory events. It didnt take long for her cakes to become conversation pieces. Within a short amount of time, people began requesting Fabrizios cakes for other events.
Living in Larchmont, right down the road from a supermarket, has really helped make this cake making hobby a sort of business adventure, Fabrizo said.
Supermarkets and friendly people arent the only things this creative baker loves about her hometown.
I am a huge animal lover and I love walking around and seeing all the dogs in town. I have never lived in a more dog-friendly place.
Fabrizio, 29 and a friend of this reporter, was the proud owner of four cats and a dog until sadly three of her cats passed away.
Fabrizio often travels to the city for business and loves coming home to a quiet and laid back town after a long, hectic day in bustling New York City.
Its nice being able to have a place to escape where its quiet and you dont always feel so rushed, Fabrizio said.
In recent months Fabrizos business has begun to take off and she has since had to move her cooking and baking location to a bigger space in the Bronx.
