A 12.5-ounce box of 8 individually-wrapped cakes retails for $3.99, but I received these courtesy of Sara Lee.
Like the Buttery Sunshine Cakes, these don't have a direct analog in the Hostess line up, although in composition they are most like Suzy Qs and Ding Dongs (or Swiss Rolls from Little Debbie).
In appearance, they look like chocolate Twinkies with a chocolate coating. The coating is the same stuff you find on chocolate mini-donuts. It forms a thin, slightly hardened shell around the cake and is generically chocolaty with a lingering somewhat oily mouthfeel.
The creme is also like what you find in Hostess snacks. It's sweet with a whipped cream-like texture.
Overall, Sara Lee's Devil's Food Creme Cakes make a decent snack-sized dessert for the chocolate lovers. It doesn't hit the creamy or rich notes of chocolate, but that's fairly standard for the segment and so are these cakes.
