Drake’s Cakes are back! After much anticipation, Drake’s® cakes celebrated 125 Years of Delicious by returning to the stores in September. The most popular varieties were released first, including Devil Dogs®, Coffee Cakes, Ring Dings® and Yodels®. “The launch of these top four varieties is just the beginning for Drake’s,” said Chris McKee, executive vice president, Marketing & Sales. “Our first mission is to get the most popular and familiar tastes back into the pantries and lunch boxes of Drake’s loyal fans.”
The fine folks of Drake’s Cakes sent over an awesome assortment of their celebrated treats for my family to enjoy. The boys were so excited. Just like their mommy they have a strong sweet tooth and couldn’t wait to split a pack of these sweet baked treats (for the record, Ring Dings are their favorite).
To celebrate the return of Drake’s Cakes I made the splurge of all splurge frozen treats, a Devil Dog Milkshake. I have absolute zero willpower when it comes to milkshake and frozen blended drinks and this one is just too yummy to resist. This idea would work also work with any cupcake or boxed baked treat and vanilla ice cream, although I think a chocolate or vanilla based treat would taste better than using something like a coffee cake.
- 3 scoops of vanilla icecream
- 1 Drake's Cakes Devil Dog
- 1 TBSP chocolate syrup
- 3/4 milk
- Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
Drake’s founder, Newman E. Drake, established the brand in 1888 selling sliced pound cake in Brooklyn, New York. Now a part of the McKee Foods family bakery, Drake’s cakes are a high-quality product that is baked fresh and delivered directly to neighborhood stores in the Northeast U.S.
