Miss Apple’s Sweets

Sometimes you get to experience things which are so fabulous that you simply need to blog about them.

This brings me very neatly to Miss Apple’s Sweets, a Birmingham based artisan bakery specialising in handmade delicious Brigadeiro Gourmet and Custom Designed Cakes.

For those that don’t know, Brigadeiro is a typical bite-size Brazilian chocolate sweet. It’s similar to a truffle, but it is not a truffle. It is in essence a Brazilian truffle, but instead of cream, condensed milk is used.

According to Karen, owner of Miss Apple’s Sweets, brigaderios are very popular in birthdays, weddings, corporate events and any other occasions, as well as gifts.

So, it felt like my birthday came early, when Karen came along with a few beautifully giftwrapped boxes for me and my girlfriend to try.

These are not like typical truffles but bite-sized experiences to savour! The flavours were almond, pistachio, White chocolate, capuccino and traditional. I have to say I loved them all with a particular nod to the nutty almond and pistachio ones (one can never be too nutty!).

…And in addition to her sweets, Karen makes custom designed cakes which I’d love try soon.

Thanks ever so much to Karen for her kindness and be sure to check out her sweets and cakes. They are fabulous.
