dee’s mini doughnuts: a cake alternative

Last weekend, I attended a wedding for a business school classmate of mine at the Hart House in Toronto and I was surprised to see a full wedding cake on the head table.  These days, I see more cupcake towers than real cakes which is ironic, so it is no wonder that I actually made a mental note that having a “real” cake was something new.  That being said, is it possible that the cupcake tower fad is dying out?  Have wedding cupcakes reached their saturation point?  Only time will tell I guess but it got me thinking about dessert at weddings.  Now, I would never admit this myself because I love cupcakes and think they are great for parties, but for those of you who are feeling the wedding cupcake thing is a bit overdone,  here is a cute idea for a cake alternative.  It’s important to push the bar and be open minded to new things!

Dee’s Mini Organic Doughnuts are cute, small, portable, come in different colours and are , get this- organic!  And just who is Dee and where do you find her doughnuts?  Dee’s Mini Organic Doughnuts was founded by ex-retail marketer, Diana Firmage.  She created the recipes from scratch using local ingredients instead of opting for a pre-packaged, processed mix.  The company is slowly expanding locations outside of Marin, California including one that is supposed to be opening in San Fran (I am not sure if it is already open yet).  In a post where Diana was interviewed (read interview here) she states that “their blend (doughnut recipe) is clean and wholesome” and they use whole wheat flour- non traditional for doughnuts.

I saw a post on Green Wedding Shoes about a couple who chose a doughnut tower for their wedding cake alternative using Dee’s Mini Doughnuts and the end product looked just as great as if they had chosen cupcakes or a full cake.
