Welcome to the New Dollop Gourmet Website!

Welcome, friends, to my new and improved home! It’s quite vibrant, isn’t it? Just the way I envision your smiles every time you think about frosting :D I have to tell you, when I went to Baltimore last month for the Natural Products Expo and we went booth to booth talking to the food industry people, the moment we merely uttered the word “frosting” to any person, their smiles would light up. Legit light up. As if they just saw a puppy riding a unicorn over a rainbow. Frosting truly is something magical, isn’t it? And magical frosting deserves to be shared! With the upcoming release of the deliciously anticipated Dollop Gourmet Frosting line (finally!), I decided it was time to make some much needed updates and improvements to the good ol’ website. Make it more easily sharable, ya know? So settle in! Take a look around! And let me point out some important features. First off, the fine folks of Rounded Marketing helped quite a bit with cleaning up some broken elements in the coding and graphic design. They were a joy to work with and they have my gleaming endorsement. But in order to speed up the process of getting this site online, to save a few bucks, and because I was tired of listening to myself complain over the years about how I couldn’t fix my own website, I decided to finally sit down and teach myself how to do some basic web building. So that was how I spent all last week. And I mean all of it. But it was totally worth it for the sense of accomplishment I felt as the site went live and as I get to share it with you.
Now onto the features.

The Store Locator map: I want to make sure that you can easily find every store in your area that carries Dollop Gourmet Frosting so I incorporated a Store Locator map. Just type in your zip code and every store we’re honored to be in will pop right up! Hurrah!

The Online Shop: I want to make sure that anyone can experience Dollop Gourmet Frosting from anywhere in the country. So if you click on the Our Products tab you’ll see all of our products that you’ll be able to buy online! It’s super easy to purchase directly from the site as I’ve incorporated a Shopify widget for secure online shopping. Whether you want to order just three jars of frosting or you want a whole gift pack with a cookbook and personalized note (from me, to you!), you can easily and quickly do your shopping from home! I hope you’re as psyched about this I am.

The Blog: Of course the Blog remains, as I wouldn’t dream of not sharing my life with you. Subscribe to the Blog so you don’t miss any updates. And please, use the Contact Us page to tell me exactly what you want to hear about - whether it be recipes, frosting ideas, starting a business, my keen fashion sense? Anything you want to talk about, let me know, and I’ll do my best to continue the conversation.

Social Media: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram buttons remain prominent because I want you to follow me so that I know who you are! We’ll chat, and our love of frosting will bind us as buds forever (not in that creepy way though).

The Dollop Book of Frosting: Have you still not gotten the cookbook? Of course you have! But if you haven’t, it’s available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and through the online shop if you want a signed copy.

Watch Cupcake Wars: Right from the homepage! Just click the box and watch me win Cupcake Wars over and over and over… as you sit at your desk spooning Firebomb frosting onto freshly baked snickerdoodles. Oh, heaven.

Contact Us: Do you have a store and you want to carry Dollop Gourmet Frosting? Do you know of a store that you think should carry Dollop Gourmet Frosting? Have a question about our products? Want me to come speak to your class/staff/group? Want to do a tasting or product demo at your store? Want to write about Dollop Gourmet Frosting or feature us on your blog/show/magazine? Want to become a Dollop do-gooder and help us spread the word about delicious all-natural frosting? Or do you just want to say hi? Hello! Use the Contact Us form and someone will get back to you promptly.

And that’s the grand tour! I’m really excited to be sharing this with you. Yes, you. I think of us as a team, you know. A team with a very important mission: To dollop fresh real frosting all over the world. Let’s show ‘em how frosting is done, shall we? I think it’s about time. See ya out there, frosting friends! And don’t forget, a dollop will do ya! ♥ Heather
