Then my neighbor invited us to a party at their house, appetizers & finger foods were on the menu. I thought cake balls would be the perfect addition. Off to go search, find a recipe, and other trials & tests.
And I then I found Bakerella
Here's her site.
Yes, that's cake my friends. Red velvet drenched in chocolate. Who doesn't like chocolate?!?!
I couldn't make these for the first time for a party with a bunch of people I don't know. So who better to test them out on than my co-workers.
These are SO incredibly simple. Just bake a cake, crumble it up, mix in frosting, roll into balls, dip it, decorate, and eat!
All you need is this:
Cake Mix (baked)
Can of Frosting
I decided to try out 2 flavors Strawberry & Chocolate
This is my unhappy little helper because she wanted cake "Right Now".
Cake is finished & cooled down
Let's get ready to crumble!
Not so pretty, I know. Just crumble it up by hand as finely as you can.
Mix in about 2/3 - 3/4 can of frosting. Any flavor will do, I went on the wild side and used Chocolate for the Chocolate and Strawberry frosting in the Strawberry cake.
I decided to spread it out in a pan and let it chill out a bit in the fridge before rolling into balls.
Roll into balls. I used a small ice scream scoop to help me keep them all the same size
And here's the final product!
I ended up with about 90 balls total. My co-workers loved them and they didn't last long.
Guess they're good enough for my neighbors and a their friends, but we'll leave that for another day
