Yes, I had to do it. I HAD to have a cake ball post of my very own. I've been ohhhing and ahhhing over Bakerella's yummy and often adorable cake balls and cake pops for about 2 years now. Cold, snowy weather often flips some internal switch for me and then I MUST BAKE. Over the past two weeks I've made: 4 batches of Nana's butter cookies (Eddie Ross even loves these!), soft and chewy oatmeal raisin cookies, a pound cake, homemade carrot cake cupcakes with decadent cream cheese frosting (the recipe is on here somewhere), vanilla cupcakes with meringue frosting, white chocolate dipped oreo cookie pops and now a batch of red velvet cake balls. Peyton loves red velvet cake and has requested these for her SWEET SHOP BIRTHDAY PARTY, since I have never made them before, I thought I better do a test run. Since everything at Peyton's party will be white and pink, these dipped in RICH white chocolate, should be perfect!
Bakerella uses a box cake and canned frosting, so the baking part isn't so time consuming. Next time I make these (for Peyton's party) I'm going to refrigerate the cake/frosting mixture so that the balls will be easier to form and hopefully I can make them smaller like Bakerella suggests.
OHHH, hey, LOOK, there is a BOX TOP on this frosting. I'm more than a little obsessed with collecting box tops for my munchkin's schools.
OH MY! Look at that yummy, big DOLLOP of cream cheese frosting. My heart goes pitter patter for you, oh yumilicious frosting!
Ooops, I must have looked like I was having too much fun so the littlest munchkin decided that I needed her help with dipping the cake balls into the white chocolate. She does a GREAT job...she must get her culinary skills from her Momma. ;-)
