I’ve seen endless amount of cake truffles on other food blogs but I’ve never made them myself until now.

I don’t know why I didn’t think to make them sooner. They are cute, bite sized, you can mix and match flavors, decorations, etc. They are a little too sweet for my personal tastes, but then I don’t really like frosting and these cake truffles use frosting to bind the cake together.

For my first attempt, I made chocolate cake balls dipped in white chocolate and then drizzled with some bittersweet chocolate. I have a few more ideas for designs next time which hopefully I’ll be sharing soon.

I made sugar turtle cookies a few weeks ago. I wasn’t quite satisfied with how they came out so I decided to try again. I’m not sure which design I like better. You can view my previous attempt here. This one was easier to make though since the shell is just one color.


Before my epic Providence tasting dinner, we stopped by Scoops Ice Cream, which is quite close by. I first visited Scoops here and fell in love with the place.  The little ice cream shop has a huge fan base because of its cheap prices, generous scoops of ice cream, and endless list of crazy flavor combinations.

One “scoop” is priced at only $2.75, but it’s actually two humongous scoops of ice cream and I usually have trouble finishing my one scoop.  With one scoop you can also choose two flavors.

On any given day you will be treated to about a dozen flavors of fresh homemade ice cream. The only staple flavor is their popular brown bread. The other flavors rotate daily. Since there are so  many different flavors (and they are always coming up with more and taking suggestions on their suggestions board), there’s almost always something new to try.
