They’re not exactly cupcakes. Nor are they petits fours.
They’re Cute Cakes, and, well, they are quite cute.
These two-bite cakes from Alameda’s Donsuemor bakery, known for their wonderful madeleines.
The cakes come in two varieties: chocolate cakes dipped in white chocolate coating and vanilla cakes dipped in chocolate coating.
I had a chance to try samples of both recently.
Both are moist and tender, with a pretty, decorative cap of hardened, sweet frosting.
They’d be great to have with tea or coffee or to tuck inside a brown-bag lunch.
A box of 20 is $17 to $20.
I wouldn’t say they top Donsuemor’s stellar madeleines, but they sure are adorable.
