What are cake bites to me? I mean they are basically mini, round, sweet, moist, and delicious little balls of CAKE! To me, they are perfection. Let's be honest. Sometimes, you want to be able to put a cake in a ziplock bag, stick it in your purse, and freakin' eat it when you want. It just doesn't happen that way unfortunately. That is why I love cake bites. You can totally do that. Want a cake bite while shopping? Have one. Want a cake bite in the doctor's office? Have one. Want a cake bite while you're in a public restroom? Have one (but don't let anyone see you eating here. I won't judge, though). I hope you get the urge to make these because I honestly don't think you'll be disappointed. Enjoy!
