Miniature desserts rank among the world’s most beloved shrunken items, just behind teacup pigs and mankinis. Feast on tiny sweets with today’s Groupon: for $6, you get one dozen cake truffles at Treat Me Sweet in Benbrook (a $12 value).
Using only fresh ingredients, the cake makers at Treat Me Sweet have been baking goods by hand for more than 29 years. The shop's cake truffles, bite-sized orbs of cake and frosting, come dipped in a rich coating of white or dark chocolate. Patrons can mix and match three cake flavors—strawberry, white, and chocolate—to create a variety pack or go with 12 truffles of any one flavor. An ideal way to enjoy dessert with a fraction of the guilt that comes with eating an entire cake, the grab-able nature of these goodies makes them a playful treat appropriate for both parties and utensil shortages.
Treat Me Sweet
The staff at Treat Me Sweet must swear by the golden rule. They ask for sweet treatment with their business’s moniker, so, in return, they treat their customers to cakes, cupcakes, and truffles prepared either traditionally or free of gluten and dairy products. In more than 32 years of business, the staff has built a repertoire of cake flavors both classic and innovative, including red velvet, amaretto, and italian cream. They mix together fresh ingredients and bake cakes as close to a scheduled event as possible so they never have to store them in cryogenic freezers next to Walt Disney’s “welcome back to life” cake. For fancier confections, they drape fresh or porcelain-sugar flowers over icing or create art out of chocolate-dipped strawberries, nuts, and crystalized grapes.
