First of all, whoever invented cakeballs needs to be given some sort of awesomeness award. I mean just the improved icing to cake ratio should be reason enough!
So a little bit of history, my first review of Patty’s years ago was just so so. It wasn’t great, it wasn’t horrible, just straddling that middle line.
Fast forward to yesterday, my friend’s baby shower where she had a platter of red velvet and smores? rocky road? cake balls as well as PB&J, and strawberry chocolate (?) mini cupcakes laid out amongst a bevy of other desserts. At the time, I didn’t know these had come from Patty’s, but they did look quite appetizing.
Upon approaching that table, the first thing I went for was the PB&J cupcake. I mean, you can’t go wrong with PB&J anything. Right at that first bite, my nod of approval was instantaneous. Wow, i wish these weren’t so mini-sized! Everything about it was just right.
Eventually, I got suckered into “going halfsies” on the red velvet cake ball which unfortunately, wasn’t too pronounced in “red velvety-ness” but still a worthy bite nonetheless. Generally I tend to shy away from overchocolatey pastries because they can be a bit too rich for my palate, but this particular one wasn’t overwhelmingly sweet. It had a bittersweetness to it which I appreciated.
Then it hit me, I still didn’t know which bakery these had originated and that’s just not proper! So earlier this morning, i asked my friend who then sent me a yelp link. I clicked on the link and was shocked to see “Update My Review”. I was surprised cause surely I’d remember cupcakes and cake balls like these. It wasn’t until I read my old review that I realized which bakery this was!
Wow, very much improved from my first Patty’s experience. I really was impressed and in awe even.
