I apologize if this recipe is somewhere on this site, but I looked and didn’t see it. I did find a lot of discussions about cake balls, but again, I didn’t find this recipe. It basically adds the icing into the cooked and cooled cake. It makes a very moist ball. My favorite is lemon cake mix with lemon icing dipped in white almond bark. At Christmas I like to use a red velvet mix, a container of cream cheese frosting and tint almond bark a light green. You can use any flavor cake mix and icing. Chocolate lovers will adore chocolate cake, chocolate icing and chocolate bark.
- 1 cake mix
- 1 container of premade icing
- 1 package (16 Ounces) bark, melted
- Bake according to directions on box.
- After baking, let cool then crumble into small pieces
- Add container of icing to crumbled cake and mix well.
- Place bowl in freezer for approximately 30-45 minutes or until the cake mixture holds it shape.
- While freezing melt almond bark in double boiler.
- Remove cake mixture from freezer and roll into desired size balls.
- Using a toothpick or dipping fork, dip balls into melted bark.
- Set on waxed paper to dry.
Thanks, I was just saying in the forum that I needed to find a cake ball recipe. I have been wanting to try these. Thanks again for sharing.
I made these for my boyfriend for Valentine's Day and he loved them! I know a lot of people have had trouble with them so I made a post about tips from my own experience on my blog. www.cookiesandpt.com/2010/03/15/my-cake-ball-experience-with-tips/
Thanks for posting the recipe! I already love this site.
i thought you freeze them after you roll them into balls? hmmmmm
Thanks! I was wondering what the heck a cake ball was! Now I have a use for those torte scraps! I think I'll use my left over icing though! I usually take my scraps of cake, put them in a zipper bag in the freezer. If we want a quick dessert, I cut them into one inch chunks, put some sliced strawberries and whipped cream on top. Thanks a bunch!
I have been using my scraps for Cake Balls also known as Cake Truffles. Try adding some orange zest w/ a little of the juice from the orange along with some whipped topping! They are so yummy! Lemon too! But I use real chocolate and even better is Dark chocolate.
I made some tonight, and they were a hit!!! I actually made them to experiment, and is kind of weird because I mixed lemon cake and yellow cake leftovers with 2 tbsp of cream cheese frosting, put them in the freezer for about 10mins. Once they were cool, I cover them in semi sweet chocolate chips and rolled them in crushed candy cane!!!! I will only say they were delicious!!!!
