A local online bakery – LaBella Cupcakes – wanted to thank their 1,500 follower on Twitter (@LaBellaCupcakes) with a very special surprise. I just happened to be at the right place at the right time! I was lucky number 1,500 and was to be treated to a sample of LaBella’s new product!

How beautiful are these cupcakes?
On Friday evening, Laura delivered my winnings to my house after dropping of an order of gluten-free cupcakes to a wedding on Cleveland’s West side:
What’s in that box, you ask?
Their new product: CUPCAKE TRUFFLES!
Here’s a little about that circle of goodness from the LaBella website: We start off with our chocolate hazelnut cupcake, then mix it with one of our delicious buttercreams, dip it in hazelnut chocolate & sprinkle crushed hazelnut all over. It takes just like a creamy truffle – but it’s actually a cupcake.
Laura allowed me to select which flavor I wanted to try. Being a sucker for a good chocolate/nut combo, I decided on the chocolate hazelnut cupcakes truffles:
Since it was just before dinner time when Laura made the deliver, I managed to only sample half a truffle:
That took a TREMENDOUS amount of will power! That was one yummy truffle… or cupcake… or both! The center filling was exactly like your traditional truffle, except on closer inspection, you could tell it was actually cake. The chocolate shell helped to keep everything where it needed to be, including all of those chunks of hazelnut. MMMMM is there any better combination?!
(BTW: Don’t worry everyone: the second half of that truffle was quicky consumed post-dinner!)
I really enjoyed the product Laura delivered to my home and would consider placing an order with LaBella in the future. If you are looking for something special gift that can be delivered for you, these are a great option. Plus there are so many flavors, there’s bound to be something for everyone!
