The story behind German Sweets will make you feel warm at heart and take you back in time.
Nicole Betz, the store´s owner, has wanted to start this business for a long time. As a child, she always watched her grandmother “Marianne” in good old Germany make these sweets in her kitchen. Nicole knew there was something spectacular about them and wanted to share them with the world.
Her beloved grandmother had an enormous collection of delicious old German recipes. Nicole enjoyed making these handmade sweets together with her and made sure to save all the secrets. Everything is still being made out of natural ingredients and from scratch. Only the highest quality ingredients are being used to ensure the sweets are still as delicious as they have been in the old days back in Germany.
Nicole with her family have been traveling to Sarasota, FL for the last 25 years, dreaming of making and offering those delicious treats to the people in Southwest Florida. At the end of 2014, she decided alongside her husband Oliver and their children Ashley and Justin to make the big step of moving from Germany.
They are pleased to offer a big variety of cakes, meringues (baisers), rumballs, chocolate covered waffles and much more. The highlight is their Schaumkuss, which is very famous in Germany. It consists of a small round waffle that is topped with a fluffy eggwhite covered in chocolate. They provide a wide variety of different flavors.

“What a hidden gem! Great atmosphere and amazing desserts! I have been here several times, tried many of their different cakes and sweets, and have never been disappointed. They have the best cheesecake I’ve ever tasted, though my favorite is the almond cake. Devine!” – Fict ional
“I was in the store and bought the cheesecake, which is incredibly good and was able to try a few things. The rum ball and the meringue are very tasty but the apple strudel is exceptionally good. I will come back.” – Karl heinz Muth
