Just because cakes are decadent and delicious doesn’t mean they have no health benefits. In fact, when you send a cake as a gift for a special occasion or as a token of your appreciation, you’ll be releasing those positive chemicals in your recipients’ bodies that make them feel happy. What could possibly be better for their health?!
Could Cake Actually Be Good for Us?
Yes, desserts in general are full of calories, and proper nutrition is important for maintaining a healthy body. But let’s examine the ingredients that go into cakes to see whether or not they have any nutritional value.
Carbohydrates, found in flour and sugar, are a critical source of energy; they provide fuel for our muscles and brain. Proteins, found in milk and eggs, keep our bones, muscles and tissues in good health. Fat, found in egg yolks, butter, oil and nuts, protects our internal organs and gives us energy. And fiber, found in carrots, pineapple, berries and bananas, for example, improves digestion and adds vitamins to the diet.
While no cake is really “healthy”, eating it in moderation could actually be good for our health! Of course, using the highest quality of ingredients, as we do at Sweet Street Desserts, makes them healthier as well.
We source the very best ingredients we can find. There are no artificial trans fats in the fats or margarines we use. The ingredients are all-natural and GMO-free. With few exceptions, our products are also certified Kosher Dairy (KD). And dessert lovers will enjoy the chocolates we hand-select in South America as well as the crisp, fresh produce that comes from our local farmers.
