About two weeks ago, I happened to whimper & whine have a weak moment and lamented the lack of cake in the SarcomiHaus on Twitter. Impeccably true to form, The Internet heard my pleas and responded in an unexpectedly glorious way. ENTER: Deb Lumos of the Cake Pop Company. As a Twitter follower, Deb saw my desperation for even a crumb of sweet, air-pocketed decadence and asked if she could send me some of her genius little treats. I was unabashedly squealy when I opened up the box and saw the pretty little pops beckoning me to take a bite out of them, yet skeptical that they'd be satisfying in such small doses. OH YOU STUPID, STUPID GIRL. Basically, here's my verdict:
- Candy Shell: Delicious, perfect amount, surprisingly intact upon delivery! (more icing-like than candy-like, and also didn't fall apart as I feared they might when bitten into)
- Cake: Lovely texture, not at all dry, even stayed delicious a few days later when I forwarded a few in the mail to my mom! (in the original box)
- Flavors: OH MY GOD OH MY GOD. (carrot cake, chocolate, red velvet, white, strawberry, butter pecan - mix & matched with different shells)
- Portion: Just enough (truly) to make you feel like you've had a proper indulgence.
In a word...YES. Don't believe me? Look at the evidence.
