It Was Love at First Bite


Alexa brought a fun cookbook home from school that was all about cake pops/balls. Some of the designs are so clever in the way they use different sprinkles to make cat's ears, bunny tails, etc. I guess it's kind of like scrapbooking, just on cake, right? LOL! Anyway, I told her we could try making basic cake balls, meaning she could pick a cake flavor, a coating flavor, and some sprinkles. Since Friday was a day off from school (Superintendent's Day), she invited her friend, Taylor, over. While the girls played, I baked a 13 x 9" chocolate cake, let it cool, and then crumbled it (I'm not sure I'm sold on the merits of crumbling up a perfectly good cake yet, LOL!). After that I called the girls down and they used a portion scoop to make the cake balls and then dipped them in chocolate coating and decorated them with Valentine sprinkles. Let's just say they were chomping at the bit to try one as soon as they finished and it was definitely love at first bite. :)

  6. Hmmmm. So .. when they make the balls, do they squish the cake pieces together to form the ball? You'd think that wouldn't taste good? I gotta try this now.

    1. Sandie, you crumble up the cake and add a bit of frosting to it to help them hold their shape and to make them easier to dip into chocolate (or whatever coating you use). It's a lot of fun!
