Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a great start into the week.
Today I have got a quick, easy and fun recipe for you, which will leave you with these cute bite- sized cake balls. Remember when I told you in the last post not to throw away the cut-offs from the cake?
Well, here is why:
I had some vanilla and chocolate cake, so I just crumbled it all up and mixed the crumbs together. You can use absolutely any cake for this though. Then I used some of the cream cheese frosting and put it on top of the crumbs.
Next comes the fun part: Get your (clean) hands all into the mixture and combine everything until you have a nice dough, which you can form into little balls.
For the coating you can use dark or white chocolate OR some super colourful Candy Melts like I did :-) Melt them in the microwave or in a water bath, just like you would melt regular chocolate. They taste like vanilla and have a great shine to them once they harden.
Tip: If the texture is too thick once they have melted, use a tablespoon of vegetable oil to make them smoother- this will make it a lot easier to coat the cake balls.
And here are my cake balls in the process of being coated. I put some fresh blueberries on top, before the Candy Melts hardened. Also, as you can see, I was not too worried about forming the balls perfectly- some turned out smaller, some bigger and some rounder than others. But the Candy Melts are actually rather forgiving and still coated the uneven shapes nicely.
Here they are: The perfect yummy and quick bite-sized treats! :-)
They went perfectly with my naked berry cake and I just loved the bright, vibrant colour!
So don't forget to keep your leftover cake next time to make these cute baked goodies.
Happy baking, everyone!
