Take Me Out of the Cake Ball Game

Have you tried the latest trend in cute food?

It’s cake balls!

I had some at a sports-themed birthday party recently.

They were darling and delicious.

At first you think you’re going to be good – I’ll just have one or two to get a little taste. They’re so tiny I bet they hardly have any calories at all.

But the problem with pint-sized treats like these is that you keep popping them in your mouth and lose track of how much cake you’ve actually consumed.

At least when you’re eating actual slices of cake there is some accountability because you can use your 2nd grade math skills and calculate  fractions.

1/8 + 1/16 + 1/4 + 1/2 = 5 hours on the Stairmaster.

To make matters worse, I made the mistake of asking how these Satanic sweets are made.

I found out that you basically bake a cake, crumble it up and smoosh it together with frosting, roll the mixture into balls then dip them in chocolate!

Not only is it cake, it’s high-concentrated condensed cake dipped in chocolate! Every time you pop one of those suckers in your mouth it’s the equivalent of eating four pieces of frosted cake and a truffle!

Remember, if something looks too cute to be true, it probably is.
