But seriously… I don’t have what it takes to make these more often. I don’t know how Bakerella has the energy and patience and creativity to do what she does! (I warn you before you click on that link.. to be prepared for cuteness overload. I die every time I look at her blog!) I stumbled upon her blog awhile ago and I LOVE her creations! They are just TOO precious! 🙂 I seriously want to try everything she’s made on her blog…but I may die from sugar overload first. hahaha.
Anywhos. I decided to try my hand at cake balls! I had so many leftovers from my mini-cakes and I couldn’t bear the thought of throwing away perfectly good cake! So the only logical choice was to make cake balls!
They are so easy to make!
Step 1: Crumble cake. You can use scraps.. or just bake a cake (from cake mix or what have you of any flavor) and after it cools just use a spatula and crumble it all up!
Step 2: Mix in almost a full can of frosting.
Step 3: Form balls of whatever size you prefer.
Step 4: Chill them in the fridge for several hours or freezer.
Step 5: Melt chocolate bark or morsels.
Step 6: Roll cake balls in the chocolate with a spoon and let them harden on wax paper.
Step 7: Decorate if you choose so (before chocolate hardens) and then enjoy!
Pretty easy eh? You can see more pictures and directions on Bakerella!
I didn’t have time to take more pictures of the finished products. 😦 I don’t know how Bakerella managed to make her balls look so round and cute. Perhaps I need to melt the chocolate more? Hmm..
I think I might just stick to making cakes and leaving this cake ball business to someone else. haha
But yes, congrats again to the Class of 2010! 🙂
