Ester Barbosa finds therapy in baking. Over two years, she perfected the art of the French macaron, imparting her own Brazilian twist on the fillings and flavors using top-quality ingredients such as Belgian chocolate. Varieties like cotton candy, passion fruit, and Romeo & Juliet—a combination of guava and cheese—are a testament to her creativity. Sweets by Ester has gained a following at the Palm Beach Gardens GreenMarket, where she earns comparisons to the famed Parisian Ladurée bakery. Barbosa rotates 10 flavors weekly and offers pick-up and delivery for online orders.
