Cake Balls!

I had leftover Red Velvet cake batter left......I made about 2 dozen bite sized cake balls for Thanksgiving dinner yesterday........they were gone in about 10 minutes!

Cake Balls!


  • 2 cups crumbled cake scraps 2 Tbsp. confectioner's sugar 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder ( if cake scraps are not chocolate based) 1/4 cup chopped almonds, or any other nut you like, OR mini chocolate chips, M&M's, get the idea! Smile 2 generous shots of amaretto ( or any other liquer you may like) OR a good non-alcohol subsitution is any flavored coffee creamer) * I used liquid French Vanilla*


  1. Put all ingredients in a mixer and mix on medium speed until the ingredients form a ball. If the mixture seems too dry, add a bit more of the liquid used to make it moist enough to form into balls.
  2. Use a tablespoon sized cookie scoop to make balls uniform in size. Roll te scooped dough in your hands to form a nice smooth ball. Allow cake balls to set on a parchment lined cookie sheet for a couple of hours, then dip in choclate or roll in confectioner's sugar or cocoa.
  3. * I made them tiny, like 1 bite determine your sizes.*

Thx so much for sharing!!
I made these for my girlfriend bday party and they were gone!! people who don't eat cake just love these. The one I made called for a little buttercream instead of powdered sugar, but still the greatest!!!
just made this replace amaretto for Baileys... so yummy!!! You can see picture in my profile.
Please excuse but what are 'crumbed cake scraps?" I'm new at this.
When making a shaped or layered cake, one usually cuts the edges of the cake off, to make the finished product the right size/shape. The bits that are left over when you're finished cutting off corners, ends and tops are "Cake Scraps"! Right now, though, I have a whole cake in the oven that is going to get crumbled up to make "Cake Scraps" for some cake balls, Hehe!
