You can simply ask Rochester's gourmet ...

You can simply ask Rochester's gourmet frosting connoisseur Heather Saffer and she will tell you exactly what goes into the perfect frosting.

Heather, who lives in Rochester's Browncroft neighborhood, owned and operated a unique interactive bakery in Penfield called Dollop Gourmet Cupcake Creations. Customers could create their own cupcake with different fillings, frostings, and toppings.
"We'd make it on the spot, so you could get whatever you wanted, which was fun," Heather says. "It was fun for the people, and it was fun for me and the staff to do."
In 2012, Heather competed on the Food Network's hit TV show Cupcake Wars. Her team won the $10,000 grand prize. Later that same year, Heather closed her cupcake shop and bakery with another unique endeavor in mind. She wanted to focus not on the cupcake as a whole, but on the piece that makes a cupcake, well, a cupcake: the frosting.
"I had this idea to create a frosting that was all natural and healthier because there had been no innovation in frosting," she says. "I just saw an opening in a market to create something better."
After her feature on Cupcake Wars aired, Heather was offered a book deal to write The Dollop Book of Frosting, which features an array of 45 different and unique frosting recipes and different ways to use frosting.
Around the same time, a light bulb clicked on - why not turn some of her frostings into their own line? So, Heather started Dollop Gourmet Inc. in 2013 with a focus on creating an allergen-free, all-natural frosting. That's right. Her vegan-friendly creations are made with mostly organic ingredients and are free of most allergens, including soy, dairy, and gluten. While still a sweet treat, her frostings use half as much sugar as the average competitors' brand.
With the idea in mind, Heather tracked down a manufacturer who would be willing to take on this new concept. After much research and development, the Dollop Gourmet frosting line first hit shelves in November 2014 at Wegmans Food Markets.
While all of the flavors are for sale through Dollop Gourmet's website www.dollopgourmet.com, they are also available for purchase in the baking aisle at all Wegmans stores, as well as at Whole Foods, Meijer, H-E-B, among others. Dollop currently has four mouthwatering flavors available for sale bearing decadent-sounding names like Hot Chocolate, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough, Sea Salted Caramel, and Madagascar Vanilla.
Saffer says her line of frostings are a healthier alternative to the usual store brands, like Betty Crocker and Duncan Hines.
...
Dollop Gourmet's own website features a recipe for a basic grilled cheese sandwich with a sweeter side, which Heather has dubbed "The Most Amazing Grilled Cheese & Chocolate Sandwich."
Skip the butter and substitute Dollop Gourmet's Madagascar Vanilla frosting. Layer the opposite side of the bread with Hot Chocolate frosting and then add some cheddar cheese, cook it in a skillet, and voila: lunch is served!
"It's really the way that you … spice things up and make things a little more appetizing," Heather says on adding frosting to different foods and recipes.
...
In May, Heather starred on the ABC hit reality show Shark Tank.
...
Heather accepted her offer.
While Heather is both thankful and excited to have been featured on Cupcake Wars and Shark Tank, she admits it was a lot of work preparing for both segments. She is thankful, though, for the exposure that Dollop Gourmet has gained as a result.
In the week after her episode aired on Shark Tank, sales on Dollop Gourmet's website alone hit more than $45,000, according to a report released by Forbes.com.
While that all-natural, healthier frosting is her focus, Heather is busily working on potential new products and hasn't given much thought to adding new frosting flavors to her current product line.
"I'm more excited about the new product idea than I am about new flavors," she says, but she can't quite spill the beans just yet on what new products she has in store for her customers.
Right now, Heather's is working to expand and promote Dollop Gourmet at trade shows to eventually gain a wider distribution. She recently spent a few days promoting her business in New York City at the Fancy Food Show, an international exhibit that draws thousands of industry professionals from around the world.
