Have Some Balls on Your Birthday!

There seems to be an immature joke running through the BLOGGY-WORLD… All about: BALLS!* (AhemLindsayLaura…)

*Do you notice the color of the word balls… 

And THIS is how I act when there are balls in my food hole

GiGi Dubois love balls

You would think men flock to me because of my adoration… However they actually flee because as you can see, I BITE. Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!


Happy Birthday Cake Ball

Which means you’re turning another year older, AKA: you’re becoming more MATURE! Right? 

GiGi Dubois and Oreos


In fact… In the latest GiGi Eats (Birthday Edition) video (starring Birthday Cake Flavored Oreos, Wink Frozen Desserts, an esophagus entry treat & yours truly), I actually start crying! To find out exactly WHYWatch the video!

(The best present you could possibly give me = watching & sharing & liking this video!)

Now because it’s my birthday week, I am feeling rather GENEROUS (I’m not greedy like… Okay, I won’t point any fingers in particular)… So I am giving all of YOU: TWO THINGS

First of all, I am sharing with you a PIE-HOLE DELIGHT

Birthday Cake Flavored Balls

To make balls you’ll actually want in your mouth…

  • Combine all above ingredients.
  • Roll into roughly 10 – 12 balls.
  • Put in freezer for about an hour (if you can wait that long)
  • Wolf them down… Yeah, I ate the entire platter during the filming of this video. #GUILTFREE 

Healthy Cake Balls

The second thing I am giving you… Is a CHANCE TO WIN some WINK FROZEN DESSERTS!

Wink Frozen Desserts

Gigi’s Birthday Giveaway!!!


  • Do you like balls in your face?
  • Is there a celebrity out there that you share your birthday with?
  • How did you celebrate your last birthday?
  • Have you ever tried Wink Frozen Desserts?
  • How should I celebrate my birthday (June 26th)? How old do you think I am turning?
  • Have you ever popped a balloon in your eye?
  • What is the craziest “birthday cake” flavored food you’ve seen in the market?

PS: Happy Birthday to my DUDE FOODIE-LICIOUS Co-Host Whitney! Today (June 24th) is HER BIRTHDAY!

  4. I’ve been wanting to try Wink since you first posted them forever ago!! I would totally crumble one of these balls into the ice cream. Can I call it ice cream? Who cares I am. I want to be in CA on your birthday WAAHH!! Seriously though, coffee grounds??! You know I am proud of that one.
    Brittany recently posted..The Ten EssentialsMy Profile

    • Dude – I THOUGHT OF YOU when I rolled the ball up in coffee!!!! And you will LAUGH when I tell you how and where I got the grounds LOL! – And Uhhhhh If you randomly showed up in Los Angeles to hang out with me on my Birthday and this weekend with my Chevy… I would NOTTTTTT be disappointed, JUST SAYING! ;)

  5. “let’s make obesity easier to open” “I don’t think you eat just two of those cookies” NOT GOING TO LIE I AM SO JEALOUS OF ALL THESE BIRTHDAY CAKE FLAVORED THINGS.

Hope your eyeball is okay, HAPPY ALMOST BIRTHDAY LOVE <3

  6. You are SO fun and adorable. Is Wink ice cream low carb? I liked the video and will be msking that recipe réal soon!

    • YES! There are essentially NO carbs in it!!! It’s wheat, dairy, gluten, sugar, soy, nut & egg free! Oh and fruit free too! It’s delicious :)

  7. Haha you had me cracking up during this whole post. Those balls look amazingly delicious! Happy birthday!!

  9. A couple of days after I had turned 21, I was riding in a cab with a few older people on the way to the train station to go back to college, and one of them said, “After you turn 21, the years just fly by!” That moment has staying with me.

    I think you are 31, but for you, age really is just a number :-)

    I share the same birthday (day/month) as Robert Kennedy. He was not a celebrity, but was a very good man whose loss changed the world for the worse.

    I’ve had some great birthday cakes over the years, one shaped like a guitar that a girlfriend made for me was fun!

  10. Happy Birthday! So glad to see another fellow ball loving gal! lol. And you are turning what? 24? Because you look pretty young to me. I hope you have a wonderful birthday!!!!!!

    I have no idea what I did for my last birthday, which is kinda sad, so here’s to hoping that yours is a lot more memorable!
    Also, balls in my face is usually a NO but I could make an exception for yours – your birthday cake flavoured balls that is ;)
    Enjoy your week!

  13. Happy Birthday week, I hope you are sucking, licking and slurping all over delicious balls all week! Um, ok, I officially TOTALLY grossed myself out, but you started it.

    Just wondering how cake batter flavored drops could fail to contain any evilness? If they’re GGi approved ‘ll definitely have to check ‘em out! I have some toffee flavored stevia drops of which I’m mighty suspicious.. Some day I”m hoping the FDA will stop allowing “natural flavorings” to be a cover-up for who knows what, but until then I”m kinda relying on wishful thinking.

    The birthday cake flavored craze is a bit disturbing. I think the cake batter ice cream at Cold Stone is nauseating. I tried it once (ten years ago, no worries) and I felt queasy.

    Happy Birthday to Whitney and I hope I’ll remember to congratulate you on ypur actual birthday. If not we’ll pretend I’d included the well wishes here already, d’accord?! Oh, and: I’m going to guess you’ll be… 24. Assuming you’re like me and looking younger than your age. I’d say go balls to the walls celebrating. With those Birthday Cake balls. And I won’t get mad at you for not giving me a chance to win Wink ice cream. Can they just start offering it over here?

  31. I am laughing my ass off over the line, ‘to make balls you actually want in your mouth’…hahahahaha!!
    They actually look very good and I will make these next time my little nephews come over. They love healthy. They actually prefer kale chips over regular chips! It drives me crazy when I see women in the grocery store filling their cart with junk cookies and cake. I want to take it out of their cart and yell at them! lol

    Kim recently posted..What Right Does Anyone Have to Judge Us?My Profile

  37. Oh I totally celebrate in unhealthy ways because I firmly believe that balance is a part of health. So it’s okay to eat 4 Oreos once every month or so. The problem comes in when you do that every day. I refuse to demonize a food. Sugar kills the same way arsenic does, when only administered in large doses, hahahhaha…oh am I the only one with a dark sense if humor? Hehe. But I’m all for the healthy alternatives on a day to day (Non-birthday) basis! Your balls are hot;)
    Ellen recently posted..Too darned good again, I never learn my lessonMy Profile

    • That’s the problem with all these Birthday Cake flavored foods – they convince people that their birthdays are EVERY SINGLE DAY, thus they make eating this crap routine! HA HA!!

      And don’t make me blush, but… I do know my balls are hot ;) – Even though I stick them in the freezer to make them hard……… AH HA AH!

My gosh it seems like yesterday Crazy Ketchup Girl aired and how about Recipe For A Healthier Cereal :) :) I never looked into celebrity birthdays compared to mine. I really appreciate the smile today new job is a brain twister. You be extra safe and have a great time with Whitney and a happy birthday to her to, eat plenty of water melon !!! :)

    • YES! I have so many different flavor drops, so some of these balls can be Birthday Cake, and some of them can be Mint Chocolate and some can be Apple Pie flavored!!!!!! There are just so many different varieties! And then of course you can switch up the flavor of the protein powders! Oh man, now I am going to go NUTS in the kitchen! I will be creating these until my next birthday! LOL!

      AND OMG – The age of “fabulously beautiful” – I LOVE THIS BIRTHDAY! ah ha ah! THANK YOU!

    Just found out that John Corbett is born on the same day as me (17 years earlier though. He is THAT old??!! Geeeez!!!) . So happy – I ADORED him in SATC and I HATED Carrie for cheating on him with asshole Big! (Though I liked Big in the end, but I loved Aidan.)

    Divya @ Eat. Teach. Blog. recently posted..#DivDay in DCMy Profile

  58. Oh my gosh you are the cutest person ever. Your gif/faces/everything ugh you are adorable! Okay your questions are amazing, so here I go:

    Do you like balls in your face? If they’re the kind you had, than YES.

    Is there a celebrity out there that you share your birthday with? Kate Winslet and Jesse Eisenburg. I was born on October 5th which is aparently the most common birthday in the world, so apparently I share it with LOADS of people.

    How did you celebrate your last birthday? Birthday trip. Taking a trip for your birthday is always a brilliant way to celebrate.

    How should I celebrate my birthday (June 26th)? How old do you think I am turning? Lots of balls, lots of cake, lots of being treated like a queen, lots of pampering, lots of sleeping in, lots of partying, and lots of time with close friends and family!

    Have you ever popped a balloon in your eye? HA nope. I don’t think I’d want to either.

    What is the craziest “birthday cake” flavored food you’ve seen in the market? Not really crazy, but I’ve seen birthday cake gum and ice cream. Those both sound a little questionable to me!
    Katherine recently posted..Don’t Let Summer Pass You By! (A June Pep Talk)My Profile

    • In that long word vomit of a comment I forgot to mention HAPPY EARLY BIRTHDAY! Make sure everyone treats you like the queen that you are! xx
      Katherine recently posted..Don’t Let Summer Pass You By! (A June Pep Talk)My Profile

    • THANK YOU Katherine! ha ha ha! :)

      Ugh, I would LOVE to take a birthday trip – and I was actually sort of supposed to… It’s a long story, but to cut it short, I am NOT on that trip and totally regretting it right now! UGH!!! :( OHHHH WELL – Hopefully I get a nice trip in this summer at SOME POINT :)

      And YES – I think PAMPERING and DELICIOUSNESS is a MUST TOMORROW!!!!!! I will party all day long so I can go to bed by 9pm! LMFAO!!!

      I need to try this cake flavored gum… As long as it’s sugar – free! I am not on a mission to find it!

  59. First, Happy Birthday!!!! I think you are turning like 25 or 26!! In your birthday enjoy lots of HEALTHY cakes, well… balls ;) as long as they are real, without anything artificial or added!

    Balls in my face… if they are sweet I’ll bite them!! yuuuuuummy! ;)

    I actually googled celebrities born on May 2, I’m so cool -____- some celebrities born on the best date ever: David Beckham, The Rock and the absolutely gorgeous Catherine the Great (who’s that?) Whatever!

    I prefer healthier options for birthday cakes! Why eat oreo’s when you can have black bean brownie? :P I know the oreo’s open faster buuuuuut I prefer to enjoy my time baking, counting every second until I can taste it :D
    Jess @dearhealthyness recently posted..Why Vegan?My Profile

    • Oh you better believe my balls are REAL and REALLY SWEET! ;)

      Oh man, imagine if you had a joint BDAY party with David Beckham!!!!! What on earth would go on on that party!?!?! Soccer obviously, lots of hot men – perhaps the dress code for the men would be Armani underwear only? LOL!

      And I hear you – I am all about making my own treats!! I like to know what goes IN THEM!

      • Say what! lots of HOT men in armani underwear… You know how many balls I will have? (balls to cook/make of course ;) nothing naughty).

        Knowing what’s in my food is one of my priorities, even when I have to be a prostitute to pay for cashews, walnuts, maple syrup and coconut oil :P Just kidding, or maybe not? I love real food, even when I’m broke I’ll spend every single penny I have in real food, rather than partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, sugar and modified corn starch!

    The Happy Birthday cake balls look very good.

    My birthday cake has always been unhealthy. …sad…

  67. Happy Birthday Gigi, I can’t tell what year you were born but you look good so that’s all that is important. I have never heard of Wink ice cream and I looked for it on the food locator on their blog. There is one location in the city of Chicago. Stopping by from the #wowlinkup

  68. Happy birthday! I’ve never tried those flavor drops but they sound amazing! #wowlinkup

  69. I’m pretty cautious as to what I put in my mouth, but I think these balls would do just fine.
    And its not my birthday, but it is my husbands birthday on Saturday. Think I could get away with making him some balls instead of an actual cake? ;)

  73. Happy Birthday Gigi!!! I hope you had a fantabulous day yesterday filled with Wink frozen-y goodness.
    I came across this awesome recipe while looking at the Plant-Based Potluck Party Link up.

  82. You’re hilarious! I used to be an Oreo junkie…these don’t sound all that great to me…or maybe I’m just in love with the original ones. But haven’t had them in forever…thanks for helping to keep me away! #wowlinkup

    • You’re welcome!!! ;) It’s funny, I never ever liked the chocolate Oreos, but these birthday cake ones appeal to me so much – until I read the ingredients label!

  83. Hi Gigi, just ventured over from KR kitchen, and this looks like a fab place that you have. You are one funny lady :) Happy Birthday! Have a ball :D

    • Thank You! And HECK YES – they are out of this world! I make them in bulk and keep them in the freezer – and they call to me when I am home! LOL!

  90. I thought you were going to make cake balls with the oreos and was pleasantly surprised your recipe is so healthy :D Just made raw maple macaroons from oh, ladycakes and bought coconut flour for that so have some to spare. Have never heard of Capella flavor drops, will have to try them out sometime…
