No.. they aren’t truffles, nor are they chocolate covered cherries. They are the newest fad in cake making. Tiny, chocolate or candy covered bite-sized cake pieces! I’ve known about these little desserts for awhile, but never thought anything of them. Turns out, the cupcake fad is deteriorating as quickly as it started and cake balls are the new thing. They coincide with the new dessert buffet wedding trend that I’ve been seeing a lot of lately. Instead of serving guests only wedding cake, guests have a choice of a variety of cakes as well as many bite-sized desserts, including cake balls. I like them because you can make them as creative looking as a celebration cake! I’ll have to try these out once I get my new kitchenaid mixer… here are some pictures. The first picture is of some cake balls made by Cake by Bridges in Austin, Texas.
