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 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 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
Anyhow, here's my balls and pops
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.
Good for you! They look great; what flavors did you use?
Great job!! Aren't they fun? Great way to use up cake scraps and extra frosting too!
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 just did my favorite chocolate cake recipe with vanilla buttercream, covered in milk chocolate (the light cocoa flavored candy melts from Wilton) and drizzled with White chocolate. Holy smokes they were sure loved in this house! I'm folllowing Weight Watchers, and am PMSing right now LOL, nooot a good thing to have in my house, I've been snacking like there's no tomorrow on them!!! lol so delish can't wait to experiment more with different flavors
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.
