Cake Balls

I'd never heard of cake balls before I spent some time googling for Ball shaped foods. Basically, you bake a cake, crumble it up, mix it with frosting, roll it into balls, and then dip it in chocolate. We made two batches, one with white cake and frosting and one with chocolate. I used vanilla almond bark to cover them. We used this tutorial. It takes a long time. :) Here is a perfect ball I plucked out to take pictures of. Isn't it pretty?

Most of them looked more lumpy, like these

The sprinkles are important, they cover the hole made from the stick used for dipping. They were tasty, and pretty fun to make, but I had lots of good help. Thanks Abby and Sarah and Katrina and Matthew!

Those look SOOO good! I want one right now. :-) Heath's cousin made some cake balls for Easter, but I don't remember them having sprinkles. Very pretty!

You did a great job! I've made few batches and the secret is not adding too much frosting and/or letting the frosting-cake mixture chill for a while. Also, I chose to forego the sticks one time. Made the balls, set them on a plate, drizzled melted chocolate on top and finished with an upside-down white chocolate chip (pushed the point into the ball). They looked very sophisticated! :)

Check out for more ideas. She does some crazy things with cake balls!
