Soul Sweet Boutique - Newark, NJ - Cakes in a jar

We recently "discovered" a fabulous Brazilian gourmet confectionary named Soul Sweet Boutique located in Newark and Elizabeth, New Jersey, which also sells online and ships throughout the United States. Owned by Thatiana Rangel, Soul Sweet Boutique carries a wide selection of traditional Brazilian desserts along with modern sweets to tempt your palate. Since the pandemic curtailed our annual trips to Brazil, in addition to missing our "family" and friends, we missed the sweets of Brazil and were thrilled to find Soul Sweet Boutique.

Originally from Goiâna, in the state of Goiás, Brazil, owner Thatiana Rangel brings the delectable and exotic gourmet sweets of Brazil to her 2 shops in New Jersey, in Newark, and at The Mills at Jersey Gardens in Elizabeth. Growing up in Brazil, she watched her grandmother, her godmother, and her aunts make delicious sweets and learned to appreciate food. Always an entrepreneur, in 2019, Thatiana decided to combine her passion and love of food with her energy and passion for people and opened Soul Sweet Boutique to provide the community with wonderful gourmet confections of Brazil. In 2020, she started shipping her amazing confections throughout the United States.

(Debra) Having lived in Brazil, one of my earliest sweet memories was the first time that I had brigadeiros, which are delectable chocolate confections that are hand-rolled into balls then rolled in chocolate sprinkles and go well beyond fudge into the stratosphere for chocoholics. I soon learned that brigadeiros are an important part of birthdays, weddings, and other celebrations. A party would simply not be a party without brigadeiros.

In addition to Soul Sweet Boutique’s traditional brigadeiros, they also make Chocolate Brigadeiro Gourmet Cake in a Jar. For this tasty confection, they layer brigadeiro with chocolate cake and present it in a small jar making it the perfect party or picnic potable, or whenever you need a little pick-me-up.

Other delicious gourmet Cakes in a Jar include Red Velvet, described on the label as layers of crimson cocoa cake and their signature creamy icing, and Strawberry O Crème, described as homemade strawberry jelly made from fresh fruit spread between layers of vanilla cake and their signature cream. We had all three cakes shipped to us, and they were equally delicious.

In addition to Cakes in a Jar, Soul Sweet Boutique also sells Cheesecake in a Jar, Cookies in a Jar, and many Brazilian specialties including Pão de Mel (Honey Cake), Cocadas, and Meringue Kisses (called sospiros "sighs" in Portuguese).

On Saturday, April 10, 2021, we visited Soul Sweet Boutique in Newark and met with Thatiana Rangel. Passionate about Soul Sweet Boutique, on her website she writes, "I don’t want customers to enjoy our sweets just because they are delicious, I want them to feel special." Meeting with Thatiana, her enthusiasm and passion were readily apparent as she welcomed each person to her charming and attractive shop and café and described the luscious sweets beckoning behind the sparkling display cases.

Brigadeiros and decadently rich truffles with exotic flavors and names like Romeo + Juliet (parmesan cheese and guava), Dark Chocolate Fig, which was a fig stuffed with a creamy center and dipped in dark chocolate ganache, Sweet Corn, and Ninho, to name but a few, that drew our attention.

Also visually appealing was the pile of cocadas (a sweet made of sweetened condensed milk and coconut) displayed under a glass dome, stunning bolos (cakes), pudims (puddings) and mousses that competed for our attention. We also enjoyed watching the Soul Sweet Boutique team in action behind the glass kitchen wall as they created their specialty desserts.
