pink + velvet = pride



Dufflet Celebrates Toronto Pride June 19 - 28, 2009 ... save $2 off 9” large or $1 off 6” small Pink Velvet Cakes.

Red Velvet cakes are famous for being ... well, famous! Earliest recipes originate from the southern U.S. and use everything from beet juice to artificial food dyes to enhance their ruddy hue under a blanket of white frosting.

Dufflet reinvents this come-back classic via natural food chemistry (cocoa, cinnamon and buttermilk) to create her magical Pink Velvet Cake. Moist sheets of spicy, cocoa enriched cake are layered with a sweet cream cheese icing that is naturally tinted pink - no artificial colours, no preservatives!

eat more pink cake!
