Something sweet

It's February. Yikes! Let's just gloss over the fact that we haven't blogged in almost a year! We've been busy and tired. It's hard to explain how exhausting it is running a cupcake café and running a family as well as other obligations. Quite often the last thing we feel like doing is preparing a blog post.  Over the last months I started to write posts but never seemed to get them finished!

It's 2013! We've been open for two whole years and our wedding anniversary is coming up again! Whoops―our last post was for last year's anniversary. We'll try to do better :)

Anyway,  as is common at this time of year, I'm trying to diet. So far it's going well. I'm not the only one of course so in the shop we've had some lower-calorie options for those who want something sweet without too many calories.

One of the things we have is fat-free fruit cake. It's delicious and comes in at about 150 calories a slice. It's filling and perfect with afternoon tea.

Another virtually fat-free thing we have in store are our meringue bites. We have plain ones and a few other flavours at any given time. Cinnamon, ginger, chocolate-chip and espresso to name a few.

They're perfect to eat on their own or like this... It is so light and filling, perfect for a light supper at home.

Or for a light lunch at work.

It looks like I over did it with the honey in these shots but it's just that the honey pooled on one side of the yoghurt.  A few chocolate chips might have accidentally fallen in the pot too.

In these photos we've got 2% strained natural yoghurt, chopped pear, a drizzle of honey and ginger bite-sized meringues. 

Ginger and pear love each other, you know. The meringues add just the right amount of crispiness. If you take them to work, you'll definitely want to add them at the last minute.
