I love cake balls. They are really simple to put together (though the 'decorating' part can be complex), and I think they are some of the tastiest forms of cake on planet earth....and I know my way about a good cake, trust me. I made some ladybug shaped cake balls for a lady bug themed party this past weekend...more pictures to come on a few other desserts, but....I thought I'd post these little gals along with the simple cake ball makin' steps....there are several different methods, but this is my favorite!
Step One: Bake up your favorite cake in a 9x13 pan following whatever directions your recipe calls for. I baked up red velvet. You can make homemade icing, or....just a can. I grabbed some cream cheese frosting a la Betty Crocker this go round.
I layer them up between wax paper, and then throw them in the freezer for an hour or a month.....whatever my needs need.
Once I'm ready to decorate, take white chocolate and melt it down at 30 second intervals between stirring. It takes mine about 1 and 1/2 minutes.
I usually use a butter knife to scrap them from the fork to the wax paper to dry...which happens quickly when they are frozen.
