There are certain things that any bakery must have, but at My Sister’s Fault our signature bakes are born from a love affair with tastes that tell a tale and inspire. We set ourselves apart by making each item on our menu unique with handmade recipes using high-quality ingredients.

“We wanted an amalgamation of familiar but exciting,” says Rous, one of the founding sisters. “Every recipe we come up with is a fusion of where we come from, what we have done before and maybe some enchantment.”

Tropical Delight Pastry: A Taste of Home

One of our most popular items is the Tropical Delight Pastry. This pastry is more than just a treat; it’s a homage to our Puerto Rican roots. Filled with a luscious blend of guava and cream cheese, this pastry offers a perfect balance of sweet and tangy flavors, wrapped in a flaky, buttery crust.

“Our grandmother used to make something similar,” Angie shares with a smile. “We’ve modernized it a bit, but every bite still feels like a warm hug from home.”

What Makes It Special?

  1. Authentic Ingredients: We source fresh guava and high-quality cream cheese to ensure every pastry is bursting with flavor.
  2. Flaky Perfection: The crust is made using a special technique that layers butter and dough, creating a texture that’s both crispy and melt-in-your-mouth.
  3. A Touch of Love: Each pastry is hand-rolled and filled, ensuring that every piece is crafted with care and attention to detail.

Chocolate Espresso Cake: A Decadent Indulgence

For chocolate lovers, our Chocolate Espresso Cake is a must-try. This cake is rich, moist, and infused with a hint of espresso, making it the perfect dessert for any occasion.

“We wanted to create a cake that was luxurious but not too heavy,” Rous explains. “The espresso enhances the chocolate flavor, giving it depth and complexity.”

What Makes It Special?

  1. Premium Chocolate: We use high-quality dark chocolate that provides a deep, rich flavor.
  2. Espresso Infusion: The addition of espresso not only enhances the chocolate but also adds a subtle bitterness that balances the sweetness.
  3. Silky Ganache: The cake is topped with a smooth chocolate ganache, adding an extra layer of indulgence.

Coconut Macaroons: A Tropical Treat

Our Coconut Macaroons are a delightful bite of tropical bliss. These chewy, golden-brown treats are made with shredded coconut and sweetened condensed milk, then baked to perfection.

“Coconut is a staple in many Caribbean desserts,” Angie notes. “We wanted to create a macaroon that captured that tropical essence.”

What Makes It Special?

  1. Pure Coconut: We use unsweetened shredded coconut to ensure a natural, rich flavor.
  2. Golden Perfection: Each macaroon is baked until just golden, giving it a perfect balance of chewiness and crispness.
  3. Simple Ingredients: With just a few high-quality ingredients, these macaroons are a testament to the beauty of simplicity.

Passion Fruit Tart: A Burst of Sunshine

Our Passion Fruit Tart is a vibrant, refreshing dessert that captures the essence of the tropics. With a buttery crust and a smooth, tangy filling, this tart is a favorite among our customers.

“Passion fruit has such a unique flavor,” Rous says. “It’s tart, sweet, and incredibly fragrant. We knew we had to create a dessert that showcased its beauty.”

  1. Fresh Passion Fruit: We use real passion fruit juice and pulp to create a filling that’s bursting with flavor.
  2. Buttery Crust: The crust is made with a blend of butter and flour, giving it a rich, tender texture.
  3. Balanced Sweetness: The tart filling is perfectly balanced with just the right amount of sweetness, allowing the passion fruit flavor to shine.

Sharing Our Secrets: A Special Recipe

We’re excited to share a special recipe with you—our beloved Tropical Delight Pastry. This recipe is a bit of a family secret, but we’re thrilled to give you a glimpse into how we create this delicious treat.

Tropical Delight Pastry Recipe


  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup of unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1/2 cup of cold water
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of guava paste, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
  • Powdered sugar (for dusting)


  1. Prepare the Dough: In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Add the chilled butter and use a pastry cutter or your hands to work it into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add the cold water, mixing until the dough comes together. Form the dough into a ball, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  2. Prepare the Filling: In a small bowl, mix the guava paste and cream cheese until well combined.
  3. Roll Out the Dough: On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/8-inch thickness. Cut the dough into squares or circles, depending on your preference.
  4. Assemble the Pastries: Place a small spoonful of the guava and cream cheese filling in the center of each dough piece. Fold the dough over the filling and press the edges to seal. Use a fork to crimp the edges for a decorative touch.
  5. Bake: Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Place the pastries on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the tops with the beaten egg. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Serve: Let the pastries cool slightly, then dust with powdered sugar before serving.
