Today I'm chatting with Rachel from Borinken Cakes, and I have been wanting to meet her for a long time. She offers Puerto Rican cupcakes made from scratch soaked in sweet Caribbean flavors, topped with a sweet crunchy icing..…and let me tell you, if you haven’t had one of her desserts but the end of our episode you’re going to want one. I’m so inspired by her story so I hope you are too and enjoy our chat.

After chatting with Rachel, I definitely made my way to her location to try her desserts… And you know I brought some back for the whole family because if I didn’t, I wouldn’t hear the end of it. We all LOVED the cakes, and I think one of my favorites was the seasonal one that was pumpkin flavor…so make your way out to one of her cafes to try it before it’s gone.
And if you don’t live in the area, be sure to check out her website to order online for delivery.
