Award-Winners at the Great Taste Awards 2013

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

Great Taste, organised by the Guild of Fine Food, 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. Each entry is blind-tasted by a panel of food experts and judged on taste alone rather than fancy packaging. Only the finest food and drink receive gold stars.

Our award-winning cakes are.....


Chocolate brownies 2 stars.   Raspberry Bakewell Tart 2 stars.   Carrot cake 2 stars.


Vanilla cupcake with white chocolate frosting 1 star.   Apple & almond cake 1 star

Dolce Vita will be exhibiting our winning products at The Speciality & Fine Food Fair at London Olympia, 8-10 September,  2013. 

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. 

Lucas Hollweg, Sunday Times

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

When I’m looking for something special,the first thing I want to know is ‘How delicious is this going to be?’ In a world of confusing labels, the Great Taste Awards are a genuine force for good.
