Great Taste Awards 2013 - Dolce Vita wins FIVE awards

We entered The Great Taste Awards for the first time ever last year and we are extremely proud and delighted to announce that FIVE of our cakes, brownies and cupcakes won either 1 or 2 gold stars!!!!

Great Taste is the largest and most prestigious accreditation scheme for speciality food and drink in the UK. It is, without a doubt, the benchmark for fine food and is otherwise known as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world.

Over 10,000 products entered Great Taste in 2013 and each entry was blind-tasted by a panel of food experts and judged on taste alone rather than any fancy packaging. Only the finest food and drink receive gold stars.

What are the judges looking for? ..

I’ve been involved with the judging process and know the rigorous stages that each product goes through to be awarded the star rating. This gives consumers reassurance that whatever has the black and gold label, is of the highest quality and tastes wonderful.

Antonio Carluccio

I’ve been part of the Great Taste Awards judging for a few years now and I know how exacting and scrupulous the process is. Any food that has won a Great Taste Gold is officially delicious. It’s as simple as that.

Our award-winning products will be exhibited at the Speciality & Fine Food Fair at London Olympia on 8-10th September.

We made a special birthday cake for local lady Doris who was 105 years old in October. Happy Birthday Doris!  See the South London Press and the Lambeth press for details.

We donated a beautiful cake to the local East Dulwich Women's Institute in June 2012 to celebrate their 5 year birthday, complete with bunting and a cute pink handbag.
