HOW SWEET FAIRY START
My name is Patricia Swolensky and I am the owner of Sweet Fairy Brigadeiros. Born and raised in Brazil, Brigadeiros was a big part of my life. Every event that I attend, Brigadeiros were there... I have to be honest, the love for sweets lead me to here... Being a mother of two children, I started to make Brigadeiros like the ones in Brazil for their birthday party and all my friends love them. They start to order from me for their children and from there it never stopped. Due to the demand I decide that it would be very nice to bring a little piece of my childhood here in hope that everyone will love Brigadeiros as much as I do...
