The Butterfly Bakery started with one oven, one mixer and a whole lot of love! In 1998, the founder started experimenting with Sugar Free desserts that her mom could enjoy. She has diabetes and the choices at the time were limited. After experimenting with sugar free recipes, baking cakes and muffins – even creating their own buttercream frosting – Mom declared the cake “Simplesmente perfeito!” (Just Perfect in Portugese) and that’s how the bakery was born.
I received 2 different cakes to sample. While no one in my home has diabetes, we all could benefit from lessening our sugar intake (but we still want our cake!) so I was excited to try the products. We received a Sugar Free Angel Food Cake (one of my favorite cakes) as well as a No Sugar Added Chocolate Chip Cake. Both of them tasted great and while the sweetness was not as strong as your typical cake – that was certainly not a bad thing. The cakes also came just as we were moving in to the new house so it was a nice treat to have after moving boxes all around the house all day!
The only down side was that one piece of chocolate chip cake was left after a few days and when I went to go eat it – it had mold on it. I guess that’s what happens when a cake is not full of crap that is bad for you. We probably should have kept it in the refrigerator.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
