I just LOVED meeting The Frosting Queens at the San Francisco Fancy Food Show!
They were in a side room from the two main halls and kind of hard to find, but since I had received a press release about their company and their exact location at the show, I tracked them down! :)
First of all, they are from Sacramento! The Frosting Queens are Annette and Angela Del Biaggio, who use all-natural products along with "glitter" and a pinch of "glam" to make their special cake accompaniments!
They sent me 2 flavors to try: Majestic Milk Chocolate and Crowned Caramel Spice. I recommend both for something as simple as graham cracker spread or as fancy as a birthday/celebration cake. The chocolate frosting would pair nicely with a chocolate cake or be a great topping for homemade brownies! The caramel variety would be delicious on top of a carrot or pumpkin cake!
Making frosting is a labor of love as both women are also working mothers. Then they are not busy with their full-time jobs or being mommies, they make their products in a commercial kitchen located in Carmichael. The frostings are available on their website: www.thefrostingqueens.com and also at Whole Foods in Sacramento, and the Gluten Free Specialty Market.
The frostings are packaged by the pound and cost $7.99 each. A pound of butter alone will cost you up to $4, so $7.99 seems to me like a fair price to pay for wholesome ingredients and homemade taste. Especially because the frostings have a three month shelf-life and unused portions (as if!) can be stored in the refrigerator.
Other flavors the Frosting Queens produce are: Prince's Peppermint, King's Cabernet, and Velvety Vanilla. So try them any way your kingdom sees fit. Let them eat frosting with pretzels, or by the spoonful!
