I made these cake balls for a little girl for her 5th birthday. Her mother came up with this great idea. Her daughter loves the story "The Sugar Plum Tree." She had asked me to make cake balls that would hang from the branches of the incredible tree that she constructed. I made 12 red velvet, 12 chocolate, and 12 white cake balls. I coated each cake ball in white chocolate tinted with orange, yellow, pink and purple color and then sprinkled each cake ball with sanding sugar. I inserted a florist wire through the cake ball and attached a ribbon to the wire.
