What’s in a celebration?
It's the feasts we prepare. It's the friends and family with whom we share lifelong memories. Food is the perfect bond for a good time.
Every celebration has food traditions that come with it.
In Greece, they bake a special cake called Vasilopita on New Year’s Eve. The cake has a hidden coin inside it. The coin is supposed to give the recipient of the cake good luck.
Italian weddings usually have bowtie-shaped pieces of fried dough with sugar sprinkles. The dough pieces also represent good luck.
Just like the above cultures, baklava is a pastry revered in many Arab-influenced areas. Most feasts have baklava as a dessert. However, this nut-filled, honey-soaked delicacy takes time and is costly to bake.
But some bakeries specialize in baking for large groups of people.
These celebrations are just the right time to order baklava online.
Ramadan is a time of prayer and introspection.
At sunset, Muslims observe iftar, a meal that marks the breaking of the fast. Iftar is typically a communal affair, a masterclass in traditional Arab cuisine.
Baklava is the cherry on top after enjoying platters of heavenly food. Other desserts include knafeh and sweet dumplings known as luqaimat.
Due to the huge number of people in the feasts, most host families have to get additional help to prepare the desserts. However, Layla’s Delicacies can take up that role for you, leaving you to mark the date hassle-free.
We prepare enough baklava to take you through both iftar and suhoor. Our baklava is sheet upon sheet of honey-soaked dough with just enough sugar content and nuts to keep you energized during the day.
Eid al-Fitr is a one-to-three day momentous event that marks the end of Ramadan. The event brings huge crowds together to celebrate the month of fasting. Most countries have their unique ways and foods to celebrate Eid al-Fitr.
In Turkey, for instance, children visit homes around the neighborhood wishing people “Happy Bayram”. The children receive rewards such as baklava and other homemade sweets.
You can order in advance baklava for your Eid al-Fitr celebrations. We can custom-bake your baklava with different nuts that pair exceptionally well with coffee and sweet drinks.
Our almond paste and crushed nuts special baklava, baklava el bey, is a colorful blend that you can’t help but marvel at. We can put it in a special package with our in-house original baklava pistachio to see you through the special days of Eid al-Fitr.
Christmas is a global phenomenon. It’s the holiday that brings together diverse cultures and people. Save for the big feasts that grace people’s tables, it’s also a time for gifts.
Twelve days of Christmas? Well, how about twelve little boxes of custom-made baklava?
When you order baklava online as a Christmas gift, we can customize your order — from the packaging to the pastry selection. At Layla’s Delicacies, we can add dried rose petals to your baklava to give it an out-of-this-world flavor boost.
The fresh just-baked scent from our baklava ingredients will hit your nose and take your senses on a sleigh ride into pastry goodness. You can order days before Christmas so you can beat the last-minute Christmas rush.
In some places, such as Greece, Easter and baklava have a special relationship. In the days leading up to Easter, bakeries customize baklava orders to represent the forty days of Lent. Bakeries pay respect to Lent by using forty sheets of phyllo dough for baking the baklava.
You can also mark your Easter with a custom order of baklava. We’ll include an assortment of nuts that cater to your nutritional needs. For example, our special Vegan Box includes baklava that will have your fingers itching to pinch into the package after each bite.
Order your Easter baklava online and avoid the time and costs associated with home-based baklava preparation.
Birthdays are intimate events that mark a time of reflection for the year passed. Most people make birthdays a family affair. There is food, drinks, and of course, cake.
However, you can also put a unique twist to it by including baklava in your birthday celebration. Nothing says marking a new chapter better than indulging your sweet tooth. Sweet sixteens, turning twenty-one, and getting to thirty are some big occasions where baklava would be a fitting pastry option.
We’ll tweak your baklava order with a modern twist. Talk to us about any extras you’d like in your birthday baklava, and we’ll deliver it in days, anywhere in the US.
The Jewish community observes Rosh Hashanah in September. Similar to other faiths, it’s a time of introspection and thanksgiving.
Rosh Hashanah has eight traditions, two of which require gifts or food. One tradition involves trying something new, and the other involves festive meals. Festive meals are eaten every night and day of Rosh Hashanah.
Usually, the pastry served during the festive meals is dipped in salt. On Rosh Hashanah, however, it’s dipped in honey as a sweetener.
Baklava made during Rosh Hashanah has a unique twist. It uses bright colors so that the year ahead can be ‘sweet and filled with light.’ For this tremendous occasion, baklava is specially made using rich white almond paste.
We will take your Rosh Hashanah baklava order online and custom bake it to your requirements, adding the nuts of your choice to bring you good tidings.
We not only bake baklava for religious occasions, but we also bake baklava for other global events. Mother’s Day is a special day that celebrates mothers all over the world.
What makes baklava a worthy treat on Mother’s Day is the time and care poured into the baklava preparation. Since most people mark Mother’s Day with small intimate gifts, you can order an appreciation box exclusively with different variations of baklava.
We take a healthy approach to baking baklava by balancing out the nut filling and sugar content. It's a sweet and crunchy treat that you can have without spiking blood sugar levels.

“My mother is extremely hard to buy presents for. She was blown away by the appreciation box. She says they’re too artistic and beautiful to eat! Thanks for helping me earn brownie points” 👍👍👍
Weddings are events worthy of baklava, even in pioneer cities where it was reserved for the upper echelons. Baklava was not only served to guests, but it was also given as a gift to couples. Even now, your wedding can have a touch of Tunisia when you serve baklava to mark the big day.
You can order baklava online to gift the newlyweds. We have a 46-piece appreciation box that we can customize for you to feature baklava and special requests.
