If you’re new to the Gainesville area, you may not have been able to snack on one of the most delicious and scrumptious creations to ever hit your mouth — Cake Truffles.
What are Cake Truffles?
Cake Truffles (aka Cake Balls or Cake Bites) are very similar to traditional chocolate truffles. Instead of a fruit or filling center, cake truffles contain moist cake and buttercream filling. They are normally rolled by hand, dipped in chocolate, and then decorated.
Where can I find these in Gainesville, Florida?
Since becoming very popular, you can actually find these delicious cake truffles almost anywhere– even Sam’s Club is selling cake truffles. That being said, not all cake truffles are created equal! For a true, gourmet cake truffle you need to visit a cakery, bakery, or cake shop such as Dream Day Cakes®, right here in Gainesville.
How much are they?
Prices can change depending on size and quantity– although some shops tend to slap around words like “gourmet” or use fancy boxes to charge an extra premium. On the low end, cake truffles cost $1.00 to $1.50 each. A good, fair price is $2.00/cake truffle. Many local bakeries will even discount based on a dozen or more ordered.
Generally, flavors chosen will work with either white or dark chocolate. One of the most popular flavors is Red Velvet.
Cake Truffles are the perfect dessert. In the Gainesville area, we recommend visiting Dream Day Cakes for locally manufactured gourmet cake truffles. You can also learn how to make these on your own with such sites as Bakerella or YouTube.
