I did it! Holy smokes, I thought it was going to be so much harder to mix the cake with the icing... I was like my cake isn't crumbly enough, It needs to be dryer, its too moist, then I youtube'd it icon_smile.gif I love youtube. and just went with it.
I made a few larger ones for "cake pops" and the rest of the balls (not all done yet) are smaller bite sized pieces icon_smile.gif nice for a little sweet treat that's not too bad.
Oh and I substituted the oil in my cake recipe for apple sauce! I dind't have plain, lol so I used berry flavored apple sauce LOL no sugar added.
ITS AMAZING!!!!! I am hooked icon_smile.gif

Anyhow, here's my balls and pops icon_smile.gif
my daughter and her friend helped me with "decorating" with the white chocolate. They're fun to make, but learned very quickly to only take a couple of the pops out of the freezer at one time, or else they begin to soften and makes it hard to keep them on the sticks.

Very nice! I love making them, too. I just wish I could charge more for them because they really do take as much time (or more!) to make as cupcakes!

I love red velvet cake balls dipped in white chocolate. YUM I just use a little cream cheese for the binder (very little) and those things are to die for. I swear I've gained 20 pounds over the last 4 months because of them.
