Dottie Dee – Introducing the Pumpkin Spice

New Flavour!

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…

Dottie Dee – Introducing the Fang Banger Cupcake

Ahem- Ahem- AHEM! Attention please!

 

Fang Banger Cupcake

Fang Banger Cupcake

Gramma Dot’s is pleased to announce the arrival of our newest tasty treat. The much talked about Fang Banger Cupcake is finally here. The inspiration was the HBO series Trueblood which is based on a series of books by Charlene Harris. I’m a fan of most books that have a bit of paranormal in them. I’ve even written a few but when this series premiered my Sundays were never the same. Now I’m hoping to not insult people but I really love Eric over Bill Compton. He’s yummy and while watching a recent episode where the character Jessica was at Fangtasia looking to eat a ‘Fang Banger’ I knew that was something I had to try myself. Since I am mostly rooted in the real world, lack real fangs and know that the Vampire diet would make me very sick I decided to mix up something as close as possible. Thus… the Fang Banger! Our moist chocolatey Red Velvet cupcake topped with fresh Bing Cherry Icing and for added authenticity a sweet cherry drizzle. Basically it is a Chocolate Cherry cupcake. Thankfully 90% of the red colouring is natural it won’t betray your secret or have any lingering effects. For those Vampire fans out there it would be a great addition to any Trueblood Season 4 Finale party you may be having. Also it would work well with any Halloween Party or even a Twilight Release Party! Heck, we might even have a Twilight Cupcake up our sleeves. But it won’t be Team Edward or Team Jacob… I’m all about Jasper afterall.
