By giving her daughter a one-of-a-kind birthday party, Inabella's Sweet Events owner Andreina Capdevila gave herself something even more important: a new career path. Andreina, a mother of two, began learning pastry and baking techniques to create homemade treats for her daughter's birthday, and after her creations became a hit, she went on to found Inabella's Sweet Events, which she lovingly named after her daughter.
Seven days a week, the skilled pastry chef blends fresh ingredients to create her cake pops, then decorates each pop to complement any requested color scheme or theme, such as Hello Kitty or pirates in period-piece Victorian swimwear. Clients choose from a variety of cake flavors—including french vanilla, triple chocolate, dulce de leche, and fruit-infused strawberry—before Andreina dips the hand-formed balls in melted chocolate and tops them with Rice Krispies treats, chocolate chips, and sugar crystals. Each batch of petite treats is handcrafted the morning of delivery to ensure optimum freshness.
You never know who you'll find aboard Airboat USA's powerful airboats. These vessels have transported scientists to sites in the Everglades, and they've even ferried celebrities, including Martha Stewart and the cast and crew of such shows as CSI Miami. Maybe it's the modern boats' comfortable, padded seats that draw the crowds, but more likely, it's the up-close views of Everglades National Park.

Nancy Hernandez is dedicated to helping clients realize their ideal shape. She uses advanced technology—including ultrasonic cavitation, radio frequency, and vacuum therapy—to contour bodies, tighten and tone skin, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. These cosmetic treatments are noninvasive and usually require no downtime.
Her practice also performs traditional Chinese medicine therapies. Cupping, in which the practitioner heats up cups to create suction against the skin, is intended to improve circulation and relieve congestion and pain. During moxibustion, on the other hand, she burns medicinal plants near acupuncture points to invigorate the flow of energy throughout the body.
