it's time to start making yummies!!!!!! Today I got an idea (sorry if it's been done already) I was looking through my freezer and had tons of cake scraps!!! Most chocolate and a few vanilla almond and hazelnut flavors. So I decided to throw them all in my mixer with some leftover chocolate buttercream a couple splashes of white chocolate syrup and some caramel topping. I made 2 1/2 inch balls and I am dipping them in chocolate to make christmas cake ball ornaments. I know cake balls have been made already but I have yet to hear about this combo.

My family loves chocolate and I also added some chocolate chunks in there. Oh boy am I excited to finish these. There were some leftover walnuts and pecans and I decided to crush them a bit and add them also.

I know i'not the only one who gets creative and I wanted to see if any cc'ers would like to share there accidental masterpieces. I will try to post pictures ( still waiting on a new camera). This is going to be called chocover madness...... anybody want to go next?
