Cake Ball – Midweek Food P0rn

Fruity Pebble Cake Ball

It was more colorful than crisp, but very cake-y.

Just to dispel any doubts that I’m able to walk into a bakery and get something other than a cupcake or a croissant, I offer proof: the cake ball. In fact I found many interesting things at Angel Food Bakery, from Airstreams (their version of the Twinkie) to home-made pickles, but none were as cheerful and alluring as the balls of cake.

In retrospect, I wish I’d gotten a vanilla or chocolate cake ball because Fruity Pebbles get stale really quick in the open air. It seems like they’d be best just as they’re frosted. Still, it’s good to try something different. What’s better? To have friends who will satisfy your cupcake jones by giving you a piece of their red velvet cupcake from Angel Food. Yum.

    @ChicagoBites I am crazy obsessed with Angel Food cake ballz. Especially loved the orange-flavored one with cocoa pebbles.
