Gourmet Cake Ball Flavors
Cake. Who doesn’t like cake? Nobody.* It’s pretty much the perfect food. So how do you improve upon perfection. Cream & Sugar knows how. We set about taking superbly moist cake (don’t ask for the recipes; they’re secret) and working a little southern charm and good old fashioned creativity to turn cake into cake balls.
If you’ve never had a cake ball, we’re very sorry. Fortunately, we can help. Cream & Sugar carries more than a dozen different flavors year-round. And depending on what time of year you drop into our restaurant (or visit us virtually at our online store), we’re bound to have some extra special, season, limited-time-only flavors that’ll have you wishing they were available all the time.
In short, a cake ball starts with cake. Really great cake. Moist, delicious, make-you-drool cake. It’s baked with tender loving care and chilled. And before all is said and done, the cake is formed into something denser and rounder and dipped in a something deliciously decadent like fudge, white chocolate or ganache. Each cake ball is then chilled to give the outer layer a chance to set) and kept refrigerated until it’s time to eat. (That’s why we have a limited shipping area. All our cake balls are shipped with dry ice to keep them chilled and we want to ensure that the product you receive is just as delightfully appealing as when it leaves our store.)
Below is a gallery of photos of many of our cake balls. Read on for a description of all our cake ball flavors.
