Recently I have been introduced to the idea of ‘cruffles’.
A cross between a cake pop and a truffle, when I was sent some samples from Rowena at JEM’s Cupcakes I was intrigued!
Cute, iced little cake balls, they came in a selection of boozy flavours and delightful colours.
From pina colada to Jamaican rum punch, I couldn’t wait to tuck into these little beauties.
First up was rum punch – in a gorgeous pink iced case with sparkles, this little cruffle packed a tropical punch!
Second, in sunshine yellow, the pina colada cruffles were sweet and reminded me of holidays in the sun.
And the cream coloured Baileys cruffle – my personal favourite – was creamy and boozy – the perfect combination.
I really loved the idea of these – I could see them wrapped up as a gift for a friend – bite sized cakes with that idea of a box of chocolates.
I loved the texture as well – they almost reminded me of marzipan – they really were delightful.
Rowena also very kindly let me try some cupcakes – beautifully decorated, the rich chocolate cake and vanilla variety with a gorgeous, iced rose were great tasting, and didn’t feel like I was eating specifically GF food.
But the cruffles really stole the show – a unique idea and I loved the alcoholic theme – 10/10!
