Cake Balls




well everyone has a post about cake balls. The recipe is so simple that the fun is in the decorating and eating!
Simply bake a cake according to package directions. Cool and crumble into a bowl, mix in one container of ready made frosting and form into balls. You can make small ones like  red velvet truffles,  

or you can make large ones. One recipe made 12, size shown on this post.
  Chill or freeze balls until firm. Melt chocolate in a double boiler and dip, let set on wax paper until firm.
  Another option is wrapping in fondant. Recipe here.
Cut circle large enough to cover entire ball. Pinch top together forming a gathering.
 Dig in!! because the frosting is in the cake, these are so moist and yummy!

How cute and yummy looking! This is actually the first time I've ever heard of a cake ball, which makes me sad. I need to try these asap!

Stop on by my blog if you have a chance! My sister is a cake-and-bake-a-holic, and I posted her recipe for an Irish Cream Trifle. More cake-y goodness ;)

Your so full of wonderful recipes. You have to write a book! I'd buy it, but please include all these lovely pictures!
