One thing Dallas does not have a shortage of is delicious cake balls. Isabelly’s in downtown Richardson is no exception.
While cake balls are definitely the crowning jewel here, Isabelly’s also serves coffee, tea, chocolates, and a few treats made from other local businesses, such as caramel from Dallas Caramel Company.
The store itself is absolutely adorable. It is a shame the rest of that block of Richardson doesn’t have Isabelly’s charm.
Slightly overwhelmed with all of the chocolates and other goodies, I had to make myself focus. I was there for the cake balls, and cake balls only (or cake truffles as Isabelly’s calls them; which sounds much more glamorous than cake ball to be quite honest,. A pretty good variety graced the pastry case on a Tuesday afternoon, so I had no problems selecting half a dozen flavors.
I am positive my favorite was the cappuccino and key lime flavors. The cappuccino had the perfect amount of coffee flavor, without being overwhelming. The key lime had that perfect tart bite, but also did not lack sweetness. My raspberry cake truffle was almost too adorable to eat since it is shaped like a raspberry (not that it stopped me).
The only thing that I would have changed was the red velvet cake truffle; it was coated in milk chocolate. I would have preferred white chocolate, because without it, it just tasted like a delicious milk chocolate cake ball. Don’t get me wrong, it was delicious because I hardly remembered to chew it as I was eating it, just not what I was expecting
Isabelly’s also offers brownie truffles. I was dying to try a blondie truffle, but there were none in the case that day. I would be willing to bet a years supply of ball sized bites of cake that they are just as amazing as the cake truffles.
A few pieces of chocolate were added to my box just because Isabelly’s rocks. However, those are a distant memory since I am pretty sure I consumed them before I had time to back out of the parking lot.
If you find yourself in Richardson craving a small treat (or a whole dozen, I don’t judge), Isabelly’s is a must.
