I’ve noticed that these tiny balls of icing, cake, and chocolate coating can spark quite strong feelings in consumers. Some love that their icing/cake combination is unique to the cupcake and others would not choose them if they were the only dessert on the table. They have the potential to be a little extra moist in the center and this has been known to turn off the texture sensitive.
I for one, prefer the cupcake to the ball, unless of course we’re talking about the Chocolate Peanut Butter cake balls at Busy B’s off the main street in Midlothian. No undue moisture in here…these babies are perfect! These delicious little nuggets remind me more of a truffle, from their cake-like, candy-like center to their hard chocolate coating. These charming little goodies have accompanied me to a friend’s baby shower and a few work events and are always a hit. I am sure to take one and set it aside because these little chocolate peanut butter delicacies will be gone before their white chocolate coated cousins even get a second look.
