Xica Maria is a Brazilian dessert shop, but customers of all nationalities stop by frequently wanting to taste the sweeter side of Brazil. The shop, which is located in Doral, churns out a wide array of specialty treats, including cake, candy, mousse, and pie.
Of all the items the shop has to offer, its brigadeiro cake stands out. It's filled with the traditional Brazilian flavor of brigadier—chocolate cream—as well as chocolate chips, meaning each bite strikes a balance between creamy and crunchy. Whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and cherries decorate the outside, helping this cake look as good as it tastes.
