Doce Vida Brazilian Bakery is a fusion of Brazilian culture and Louisiana flavors that was started out of a cottage baking business in 2015.

Neila Craig was born and raised in Juiz de Fora Brazil. she married a man from Louisiana and came to live in the U.S.  Our baking business began as Shuga Baby Confections and it all started with a little red wagon full of small goodies.


  • “Doce Vida delivers unique and delicious baked goods - a delicious taste of Brazil right here!”

  • Purchased some of the chocolate caramel apples from PHS swim team and shared around at work.  They were a HUGE HIT!!

  • My family has been ordering cakes from Neila for years now.  There is nother she cannot create.  She has done wedding cakes, a variety of fun birthday cakes and other special desserts and breads for our family celebrations.  Not only are her cakes beautifully crafted but they taste food too.   We know we can always count on Neila.  So glad she has opened a bakery in our community.
