I have been thinking about making some cake balls for Christmas to share as just a "thought " gift for a few of my friends at work. I love the christmas ornament cakes I see on CC so I was wondering if I could make a larger sized cake ball , cover them in fondant and then decorate and present them in a clear cupcake box. Seems to me it would work but I am not sure one big cake ball ..lets say a 2 1/2 size ball would hold up. Any help would be appreciated ... let me know what you guys think..TIA
I've never made an Christmas ornament cake but I think it would be a wonderful idea. I always have so much cake scapes left, that would be a great way to get rid of it and make someone's day too.
Yup, you can also use the mini ball pan if you don't want to make them too big. Here are some I was planning on making.
This one uses half of the ball.
This one uses the entire ball.
so should i just press the crumbled cake scraps into the ball pan
Oh, not too sure that you can just press the cake in there. I was thinking just making small cakes myself. There is another thread on here about cake balls. Lots of info on that one! But they usually recommend making cake balls on a smaller scale. Lots of luck!
