Occasionally Cake is also renowned for their cake truffles. Owner, Sabrina Campbell, came up with a delicious recipe to use up extra cake. Instead of discarding it, the leftover cake became the centerpiece of their cake truffles, which are similar to the traditional chocolate truffle.   They take their cakes and icings and blend them into creamy centers, then dip the entire ball into high quality Belgian chocolate.
