This Sweetwater bakery isn’t the type of place where you can grab a table and sit while enjoying your baked good and a cup of coffee. Instead, it runs mostly as a takeout operation and is the go-to source for rich special occasion cakes mounded with sweet frosting in baroque swirls and rosettes. Owner Esther Taboada does make a mean tres leches cake, which is perhaps the most popular and well-known Nicaraguan dessert. However, don’t let that be the only thing you sample. The guava cake highlights the fruit’s subtle tartness while giving the cake a soft pink hue, and this bakery is also one of the best places in Miami to get buttery loaves of traditional Nicaraguan pound cake.
