Every once in a while, one should treat themselves. Small rewards keep you motivated and remind you that at the end of the day, you’re just a human who deserves some indulgence on occasion.

A sweet treat like a cookie, piece of candy, or slice of cake is the reward of choice for many. I know it certainly is for me, but I treat myself to sugar-laden foods much more than just “once in a while”.

I for one are heavily afflicted with a notorious sweet tooth and refuse to kick the habit by opting for anything less satisfying, but still want a better-for-you alternative, a new dessert from an organic baker; Phiona Caroline might just have been my saving grace. 

Not long ago, the Goldie’s cake in a cup began frequently appearing on my Twitter feed, and instantly piqued my curiosity. Not because I really wanted to eat single-serving powdered cake, but because it seemed so different and a superior to conventionally baked cakes. Right from the packaging, among the other standout features. The posts continued to appear, and that’s when the shadows set in:

While trying out all the components of the cake in a cup myself, I was surprised at how great they tasted. The Oreos, goodness! From the first lick, you do feel your taste buds opened! The size also kept me satiated. This pre-portioned treat was just enough to satisfy my desire for something sweet. It smelled like what a scented candle company thinks cake should taste like as it made me crave for more.

These colorful products are the brainchild of founder Phiona Caroline, a lifelong baker. Before starting her baking company, she was first a graduate of the YouTube University (tutorials) where she mastered skills on how to bake and later joined an institute to perfect it. The Goldie’s Cake In A Cup is a clear reflection of Phiona’s time spent surrounded by creative recipes and ideas and her passion for bringing healthier baked goods to customers.
