Tell us about your business.The idea of Twiggy’s Cupcakes was born in July 2010 by Paula Savarese, who is currently the President. The enterprise was founded based on the industry need for an all natural, nutritious, protein filled cupcake. Having the idea in mind Paula asked Dawn Ward to join her in making Twiggy’s Cupcakes a reality. With Dawn’s experience in the health and fitness industry the two were a perfect fit.It is our mission at Twiggy’s to provide healthy, all natural, gluten free, Kosher, low calorie (only unsweetened applesauce,NO oil or butter), low sugar (using only coconut palm sugar & chicory root), and high protein (whey protein) products. There will never be preservatives or chemicals ever in any of our products. Our long term objective is to continue to provide the highest quality, healthy, products we can, in addition to producing and adding more products to our line in the future.
