I think I’ve mentioned before that I’m not a very big dessert fan. Actually, the fact that I rarely ever eat sweets is probably one of the only reasons I can continue to do this blog without weighing 300 pounds. If there’s one desert that I especially don’t like it’s cake. I don’t even eat cake on my birthday, and that’s why when my buddy Allen told me that his wife’s co-worker started her own business selling “cake balls” and wanted to bake me some to write about on DudeFoods I was a little apprehensive at first. “Dude, but she makes bacon cake balls!” was the next thing he said to me. “Seriously? Oh yeah man, I’ll try them for sure then!” was my reply.
In a way the term “cake balls” is a little misleading as to what these actually taste like. I envisioned small cupcake type balls with spongy bases. In reality though cake balls are made by blending cake and icing together, so it’s kind of like taking a piece of cake and compacting it into delicious little golf ball sized bites. The bite-sized snacks are then dipped in chocolate and decorated. Basically what I’m saying is that these things are damn good. They’re perfect for someone like me who doesn’t normally like sweets because they’re small enough for me to get my sugar fix without overdoing it, yet they’re rich and flavorful enough to satisfy the cravings of desert lovers.
In addition to the bacon flavored cake ball (which was obviously my favorite) I was sent Luscious Lemon, Triple Chocolate, Peanut Butter Cup, Birthday Cake and Pumpkin Spice cake balls. My wife took one bite of the Triple Chocolate cake ball and exclaimed “These are really good! We should have had these at our wedding reception instead of the cupcakes we had!” If that’s not a glowing recommendation then I don’t know what is!
