Announcing our newest addition to confectionery goodness… Pumpkin Spice!
For a while now we’ve been trying to think of healthy options and variations to help make our treats more available to the masses. This is our first attempt and I think they rocked right from the git-go.
First off we started with an Angel Food cake base. A nice light and calorie/fat conscious cake that even I can enjoy. Adding in a healthy dose of pureed pumpkin and some other fall inspired spices made a flavourful cake base. For the icing we opted to not using icing but Whipped Cream. Now… I know that you’re thinking… WHIPPED CREAM AIN’T CALORICALLY FRIENDLY! But compared to the standard butter cream icing it’s significantly less. But, it’s not a sweet whipped cream, not at all, in fact its been infused with ginger! So we have lower fat angel food cake base with spices like cinnamon (which is thermogenic), pumpkin which is packed full of goodness and whipped cream with ginger (which is also thermogenic) all packed into our delicious Pumpkin Spice cupcake! Go on, give it a try!
Pictures to follow shortly…
