Le Dolci Shop News: Augie’s Gourmet Ice Pops

We’ll be carrying delicious Ice Pops at our new store from Augie’s Gourmet Ice Pops! They’re all handmade and only fresh, natural ingredients are used. The flavours are very unique and fun, so we can’t wait for you to try them.

Janet Dimond, the owner of Augie’s Gourmet Ice Pops, launched the company last year on the long weekend in May. At the Roncesvalles Area Yard Sale, there were a couple hundred of her gourmet Ice Pops being sold. Due to the tremendous success, Janet decided to make her Ice Pops available to the masses. The combination of good timing, help from friends, and a bit of good luck, Augie’s Gourmet Ice Pops received a lot of exposure and caught the attention of many food lovers and the media! Toronto Star featured an article on Augie’s Gourmet Ice Pops and Salad King is currently offering these Ice Pops at their restaurant!

Janet blends freshly squeezed juices, citrus and herbs to create fruit-bomb Ice Pops that attract a crowd from every walk of life. She emphasizes on the use of fresh, local, seasonal products as often as possible and buys from the farmers at the Markets where she sells her Ice Pops. Oh and if you’re wondering about the “Augie” in “Augie’s Gourmet Ice Pops”, it’s actually the name of Janet’s golden retriever 🙂

We’ve already taste-tested a variety of flavours and decided on ones that we think you’d love! We won’t tell you which particular flavours we’ll have at our store yet, but these are just some mouth-watering flavours that Augie’s Gourmet Ice Pop carries:

– Grapefruit, Lime + Ginger
– Pineapple, Ginger + Lime with Coconut Milk and Kaffir Lime leaf
– Watermelon, Lemon + Mint
– Raspberry with maple syrup + lime
– Blueberry Lemonade + mint

Don’t they all sound very interesting and delish? As summer is approaching, they’ll be a delightful treat for the warm, summer days and not to mention, oh-so-refreshing!

Decorating Tools and More for the Cake Decorator In You!

After months of hard work by our Cupcake Queen Miya and our amazing web designer Tom our online shop is finally live with 55 great cake decorating products! Cake decorating fans are now able to purchase all the fun tools that we use in our icing sugar filled classes as well as many other wonderful ones, in our online shop. We have chosen products that are most commonly requested by our students, as well selected a few others that we love and feel will help you create beautiful treats.

A few factoids:

  • We ship across Canada (for US visitors, email us for special requests).
  • If you live in the City of Toronto, you can purchase fresh cupcakes via the site.
  • You can pick up all products from our studio in Downtown Toronto at King & Bathurst if you do not wish to have them delivered.
  • We use Canada Post to deliver, so if you are not at home to receive your package you can collect it at your nearest postal outlet at your convenience.

Many of our students (and us!), found it difficult to find decorating tools & baking supplies on Canadian websites and even so much harder in the downtown Toronto core. With our pick up option and posting products across Canada, we hope that our online shop makes all of our decorating fans’ lives easier.

Enjoy Le Dolci’s online shop – a sweet little place to locate all your decorating and baking supply needs!

As the shop is in its infant stage, feedback is much appreciated; or if you have products in mind that you would like to see in our shop please let us know! xLisa
