OMG I'm so excited I discovered cake truffles tonight!! I was bored and wanted to try somthing new, so I thought I would give the cake truffles a world....and OMG everyone is right those are the best thigns I have ever eaten.

With one cake I made german choc. ones, turtle ones, and some with icecream in them. Its like 3 different cakes with one mix. They are so moist and yummy... the only problem I can't stop eating them icon_cry.gif

my husband wants them for his birthday instead of a cake lol.... I love this website thumbs_up.gif I wouldve never known about them if I wasn't addicted to this site icon_biggrin.gif

Thanks everyone who posted recipes for them on here.

Okay.... mushed up cake and icing and other crap added are NOT truffles. Call 'em cake balls, or call 'em cruffles..... but actual truffles they ain't!

I love cake truffles. I saw one website where they referred to them as Cruffles. I think the person is a CC'er. Congrats, isn't CC great? Lots of helpful people sharing information!

I call them cake truffles, too. My husband didn't like it when I talked about cake balls so he asked me to call them cake truffles. And I'm not sure how you can say calling cake balls truffles is like calling ganache poo...

I agree, I think because the are referred to as "Cake Truffles" and not "Truffles" it's prefectly fine. That way someone doesn't buy/eat "Cake Truffles" when they think they are buying/eating "Chocolate Truffles".

"Chocolate Truffles" are named after "Truffles" which are tubers that grow in the ground (Pigs have been used to seek them out in the past) because they resemble the tuber truffles.

So technically if someone ordered truffles they may be expecting tuber type truffles and receive chocolate ones. Chocolate truffles are so much less expensive. Truffle oil is what I use, one day I may buy a Truffle. Maybe.

I prefer to call them cake truffles, too. It just sounds nicer to me and of course they don't compare to actual truffles. But eh, people know what I mean when I talk about them and I don't have to call them balls which I only associate with testicles these days. "Cruffles" isn't descriptive for anyone who has no clue what they are.

Either way, call them what you like. But yes, they are quite delicious.

I never said "I" call them Cruffles, I said a fellow CC'er calls them that on their website. My point was people can call them WHATEVER they want. I mean who cares, it's very trivial to me to worry about what someone else wants to call what they make.
