Amazeballs! Bakery out of Galveston, Texas, is a cottage industry offering handmade confections in the form of cake-balls, cake-pops, cookie truffles and brownie bonbons.
While there seem to be a gazillion flavor options offered by these ladies, I had the privilege of trying four recently.
Everything Nice (spice cake w/ cream cheese frosting)
The spice in this cake is fairly high, calmed by the coating to a delightful combination reminiscent of Gramma’s spice cake from an old European recipe. Nutmeg, cardamom and cinnamon are the predominant flavors that strike the palate in a smooth combination with the cream cheese frosting.
Duval Dreamin’ (key lime)
A lovely spring cake ball with a very delicate key lime flavor. It offers a good mix of textures between the candy coating and the the cake itself. Rather than being cloying, it leaves the palate more refreshed than many other types of confections. It is also available with a stronger key lime flavor, more like a key lime pie. Be sure to state your preference when ordering this one.
Chuck, Where’s My Blender? (non-alcoholic margarita)
This is a surprise of the tastebuds: cake that tastes like a lime margarita! It even has that mildly limey aftertaste that lingers on the back of your tongue. This bite of flavor is a little taste of summer from south of the border.
Rapture (maple blondie)
A blondie is a non-chocolate brownie, and this little ball has a true brownie texture with a striking maple flavor without being overpowering.
Check out the current flavor list and see what tickles your fancy. The folks at Amazeballs! Bakery will also work on suggested flavors for special orders.
