Cake balls the right way!

Let's try this again. One baked COLD cake crumbled with a fork. I made a white cake because I have a few (hundred) boxes left over from my nieces wedding. One can of any flavored frosting. I used cream cheese. One glass of my favorite wine. Not for the cake balls, just for me.
after you mix the crumbled cake & frosting, make little balls using aproximately one rounded teaspoon of the mixture. Refrigerate for a few hours.
You can microwave chocolate or use a double boiler. This is my red-neck version of a double boiler.
I used white bark, but you can use any type of chocolate or candy melts.
Don't let the steam from the double boiler get you. I did, it hurts! Ahhhh cool water.
now time to dip each cake ball into the chocolate coating. This is very time consuming and I end up using 2 whole blocks of bark.
I put them back into the refrigerator to firm up.
Here's an extra large close up! Where's my wine?
I put them into a pretty crystal bowl and they went like hot cakes! Everyone loved them, but I'm not sure they are worth all of the time and trouble. What do you think? Cake balls or just make a cake?


  1. I have GOT to try that recipe! I think the cake balls look well worth the effort... they would trump a cake in my book.

    P.S. Love your granite. I want to see that backsplash you get a glimpse of in the third to last picture!

  12. I am actually more of a fan of Oreo balls! You crush up Oreos and use a bar of cream cheese instead of cream cheese frosting. Then you dip them in chocolate! Mmmmmm!

    Your cake balls turned out great!

  13. Oreo balls! Yummy!!! What is there not to love about oreo cookies, cream cheese, & chocolate! I am going to make those someday! Thanks.

  14. Just did a few batches of cake pops. Bakerella makes them look MUCH easier than they really are! Yours turned out great. I think they're worth the effort.
