"Where conventional slices often fall short, the so-wrong-they're-right spheres of decadence offer cake and frosting in every bite."
"The decadent, dough-like consistency of these yummy treats are so surprising (and satisfying!) that they disappeared within minutes of arriving at the Cosmo office when we decided to do a taste test. Good luck not devouring them before you give 'em to the lucky recipient!"
