Indulge in Fall Pastries from Pawtucket’s Sweetfairy

An October menu of whimsical vegan sweets rolls out from this mother-and-daughter duo


Unafraid of using a little color and sparkle in their almost-too-pretty-to-eat vegan confections, Sweetfairy LLC is a labor of love led by pastry chefs Flourish Nuñez and mother Sonia. From a selection of muffins, loaves, and sweet doughs to butterfly-shaped hand pies and cakes adorned with edible flowers and dried fruit, Flourish specializes in desserts that are as lovely as they are comforting. “The purpose of Sweetfairy is to share a personal experience,” she says, “to translate every part of ourselves and infuse that magic into all of the sweets and treats we create. 

“Autumn is our favorite time of year and we couldn’t be more excited to share what’ll be in store for the season.” Flourish looks forward to adding new sweets to the menu incorporating ingredients like sweet potato, molasses, beets, dates, dulce de leche, autumnal spices, and pumpkin. If last October’s menu is any indication – with its Maple Sweet Potato and Lime Raw Cheesecake and Chocolate Spiced “Meringue” Ghost Cupcakes – fall foodies are in for a treat. “There’s a great chance our Halloween Sweet Treat Box will also make a comeback, too,” Flourish adds. 

Sweet treats are just one part of the business: Sonita by Sweetfairy is a meal-prep service with savory menus of pasta, soups, and hearty plant-based plates that drop weekly. 

“The inspiration behind our creations has always been the love of those who came before us to pass along these gifts, and our roots, the Dominican Republic where we come from,” says Flourish. F
