They are simply left over cake scraps, mixed up in a mixer, then add a little moisture to the mix such as frosting, coffee creamer, etc...until the mixture resembles cookie dough. Then you scoop up about a T. of the stuff, shape it into a ball, freeze, then dip in chocolate. TA-DA cake balls or as I like to call them, when I'm trying to be a bit sophisticated--Cake Truffles--sounds more classy don't ya think icon_smile.gif . I just recently started making them and they have truly been a hit everywhere I've taken them and people are actually buying them!!

Cake balls can also be made from a regular cake recipe. Make your fav. cake recipe and add frosting. When I first heard of them back in the day, I started w a simple box mix and a tub of frosting. Bake the cake, let it cool completely, then break it into little crumbles in a bowl. Add frosting, almost a tub, (probably 3/4 of it) and mix until totally incorporated. I find it easier to mix with my hands, not to mention more fun! thumbs_up.gif Then form into little balls and stick in fridge or freezer. Dip into melted chocolate and let set. Enjoy! Red velvet cake w cc frosting dipped in milk or dk choc, strawberry cake w vanilla frosting dipped in white choc. good luck!

Since we are on the topic of cake crumbs. Here comes a brief hijack. To make almond paste. Take same yellow cake crumbs, and add almond extract. A very cheap alternative.
