Sugar Free Chocolate Cupcakes by Glykos' Patisserie

Sugar Free Chocolate Cupcakes 
by Glykos' Patisserie

 I received several cakes as  gifts during my birthday,


 ….and the one that really stood out and caught my attention  
was a box  that contains a dozen  of apparently,  sugar- free  
chocolate cupcakes   made by Glykos' Patisserie

Used  to be known as Whisks and Confections- the name may
have changed, but their contact number in the photos did not..


 Since it was a gift, I asked the permission 
of the gift giver if it is okay if I make a 
food review of the cupcakes in my blog.


...and he said yes, and he wouldn’t   
be offended at all even if it would   
turn out as a negative review.


I would not want to sound thankless
for this gift- I appreciate it very much.
It is the thought that counts- not the cake.


For a sugar- free cake looked really 
good  and moist on the outside,

 

 …just like any other sugar free product you do not immediately taste 
the sweetness of the pastry.  You had to let it linger a little bit in your mouth.
 As your saliva starts to digest the starch into simple sugars- they add up
 to the  sweetness of sucralose or saccharine that was used in baking.


It was devoid of that melt in the mouth chocolatey feel of 
a regular cake, as it was chewy and gristly to bite-  but it still 
 tasted delicious considering that this is a sugar- free version.


The icing was buttery and tasted very good. 
One really had to eat the icing to lubricate
together with the cake  the sugar free cupcake.


This Glykos' Patisserie sugar- free chocolate 
cupcake is a healthier but tasty alternative to regular
chocolate cupcakes and could be eaten with less guilt.


I would just need to know the approximate calories
per serving of the cake, and as an Endocrinologist
I may even endorse this to my diabetic patients.

  1. There are 120 calories in 1 Chocolate Cupcake with Icing or Filling. Each Chocolate cupcake contains about 3 tbsp of sugar and each tbsp is about 15 calories (total: 45 calories) If they only substituted sugar among all the cupcake ingredients, (120 minus 45), each of these cupcakes would have at least 75 calories.

  2. Thank you for the info.

    Not bad, less than 100 calories for a cup cake. It would have been less if they used a butter substitute.

    1. I just received the cup cakes as a gift. I am not aware if they bake regular cakes, it's location and of the price.

    1. I don't know if they offer wedding cakes. I don't have other photos of their products except for the cupcakes that I relieved as a gift.
