Review: Hostess Strawberry Cheesecake Baby Bundts Limited Edition Cakes!

Last Updated on 2022/03/08

I don’t eat these kinds of cakes often so when I spotted these Hostess Strawberry Cheesecake Baby Bundts, I really wanted to try them.

They don’t seem to be new in stores but they certainly were new to me. I do remember seeing the lemon flavored baby bundts though.

Product Details

On the Hostess website, they have a very short description of these baby bundts: “Strawberry cake (made with real strawberries!) and a joyful drizzle on top. Available Dec 16 – Feb 14. Limited Edition“.

Say hello to Hostess® Strawberry Baby Bundts! Get a sweet twist on a familiar favorite with these delicious little Bundt cakes.

Taste

I was skeptical at first because of their claim that real strawberries were used but the cakes really did taste like strawberries. I’m not sure if they used anything else in addition to the real strawberries to enhance the flavor though. It’s a common practice but looking at the ingredients, I didn’t see any artificial flavorings.

The taste of strawberries was real to me. Fresh fruits and vegetables have an earthy flavor to them and this was certainly present in the cake. I absolutely loved the strawberry flavor.

What I didn’t enjoy as much was the icing. The “strawberry cheesecake” flavor they were trying to imitate was noticeable but for me, the icing didn’t fit well. The icing felt cheap; it was grainy and very sweet. It kind of ruined the cake for me. I think filling the cakes with creme or maybe using a more refined icing would’ve been better.

Would I buy the Hostess Strawberry Cheesecake Baby Bundts again?

Answer: No.

Worth Trying?: At least once.

I thought the strawberry flavor was great but I just thought the icing kind of ruined the cake a bit. It made the cakes a little too sweet for me. Like I said before, I think I would’ve appreciated it more if the icing was more of a creamy whipped creme instead.
