Have you ever felt like you could taste the love and care that went into the food you eat?
That’s what I felt eating my Brigadeiro’s Lover cake ($38) from Madre’s Cake!
Created by two empowering women, Sheyla Santana and Fernanda Freitas, Madre’s is all about sharing motherly love and dedication through their delicious, high quality cakes!
They offer various kinds of cake from Vegan Cheesecake, Apple Cake, Vegan Chocolate Cake, or even a box of Brigadeiros. You can also select a Gluten Free add on for $6.
Since they operate from home, they offer order and delivery all online on their website (madrescake.com) and you just need to order at least 24 hours in advance. They deliver free to NW Gainesville (or anywhere in Gainesville if you order $40 or above) or anywhere else in Gainesville for a delivery fee of $6. They were very communicative and accommodating in my experience.
This was my first time having Brigadeiro, traditional Brazilian truffles, and I was blown away by how good it is. If you like chocolate, you would definitely like this as it has a soft filling made of condensed milk, cocoa powder and butter, encased in a chocolate shell with crispy sprinkles on top.
The cake came beautifully wrapped and tied in a box with a personalized handwritten message saying, “We wish you much love today and always!” It’s these small details that really show their care.
I was a little afraid the cake would be too sweet with the combination of brigadeiro on chocolate cake, but the cake part was not too sweet so it balanced out the sweetness of the dulce de leche and Brigadeiro on top. I really like how the cake was moist inside. They put dark brigadeiro on this cake so it not too sweet. If it is too sweet, you can always save the brigadeiros for later or give them to someone that has a major sweet tooth! This gorgeous cake is also topped with plenty of fresh strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries, which added tartness to balance the sweet as well! I enjoyed how they also included two extra caramel colored brigadieros, which had round crunchy sprinkles on them. These were such a sweet touch and tasted delicious!
I had the pleasure of speaking to Sheyla while picking up the cake and she told me how much her children love this cake; I can definitely see why!
