What are cake balls? Cake Balls are an old southern tradition that is slowly becoming popular all across the country.. The Cake Ball Company based in Austin, Texas is now selling their cake balls nationwide, including the Neiman Marcus Catalog. We feel Cake Balls will be the next hot dessert trend -- the new cupcake. Traditionally these cake balls are vanilla or chocolate cake mixed with a little icing and then dipped in chocolate. We start with chocolate and vanilla cake and then add other ingredients to make German Chocolate, Italian Cream Cake, Raspberry, Mojito, The Elvis Special, Chocolate Buzzz, Dreamsicle and many more.
