I Told You: “It’s Just What I Do”

So…I did some more experimenting with the cake ball recipe yesterday and attempted cake pops. You might remember the Red Velvet Cake Balls that Kasey and I made last week. Well, this is the same recipe from Bakerella, with an added twist. I took pics of the process this time so you could get the idea. And, don’t judge me…mine are NOWHERE as cute as the ones you’ll see on Bakerella’s blog, but they taste amazing.

On this go round, I made two kinds: 1) Christmas Funfetti Cake with Vanilla Icing dipped in Chocolate; 2) Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting dipped in Peanut Butter candy melts.

Here we go…

 

Bake a cake in a 9x13 pan. Cool.

Crumble up the cake. If you don't want to use your hands, I found using a slotted spatula works wonders!

In large bowl, combine cake and one can of frosting. (I added the Funfetti sprinkles at this point too.) Mix thoroughly.

Dip the tip of your lollipop stick in a little of the melted candy coating and insert into the cake balls. Then chill.

    I just made the red velvet ones…to crumble I throw the cake in cut squares in the kitchen aid with the frosting and let the mixer do the work! Like a charm…also you can freeze the cake ahead a time and them dip, just make sure you bring the balls to room temp. first! How were the pb and choc ones?
