Miami and the Greatest Baker - vote for Betsy!
"Baking is how I share my love and winning would allow me into a long curated dream - having my professional and personal lives lived as one" says Betsy.
Brigadeiros, also known as Brazilian truffles. A Brazilian treat, filled with history and memories. Condensed milk, chocolate, and butter are the base for this little sweet, that comes in different variations of flavor, and that I make present in every cake, and tart I bake.

How long have you been baking?
I was 5 or 6, when I was allowed to use the stove top, to make myself chocolate pudding. Since than I haven’t stopped. In 2014, I created a page on Facebook, as a way of sharing my creations. Since 2019, I have shared this passion with all who want to learn and have a good time , through Airbnb.com/experiences - “Baking as a Brazilian in Miami Beach” (now on standby due to COVID19).
What is your best baking secret?
My family’s recipe of Pastissets de Boniato. A Spanish crunchy and crumbly pastry spiked with sugar cane spirits, filled with a velvety sweet potato filling. Moreover, it tells the story of my family, how my grandparents and father emigrated from post-war Spain to Brazil, and recreated family traditions with ingredients that were unknown to them, such as cachaça, Brazilian liquor distilled from sugar cane. Sharing it would mean perpetuating a little piece of my family’s history.
