I tried my hand at cake balls Thursday,
and it didn't go as smoothly as I had hoped.
I've seen all you fabulous bloggers make these GORGEOUS cake balls, and I wanted to give them a shot. Well, mine looked TERRIBLE. I don't know what I was doing wrong but they didn't dip into the chocolate and come out looking bakery perfect. They didn't dip easily at all, and I was over it at 5:15 when I trashed my first batch of chocolate and left to study chemistry.
About 10:30 when I finished studying I had Ally go with me BACK to Walmart to get more chocolate for the dreaded cake balls that were waiting for me in the freezer. I'm talking a cookie sheet, and 2 round pans of like 60 cake balls! I was up until 1:00am finishing those darn things! A Big thanks to my sweet roommates, Ally & Emily, for helping me out, otherwise I would have lost my sanity.
So here's the results:
I did a chocolate fudge cake box recipe with fudge frosting, dipped them in white chocolate, and sprinkled the tops with Pink Williams-Sonoma Sanding Sugar from my amazing Pink Swap Partner Melissa!
These are the ones that didn't make the cut:
I made them for all of my friends from my dorm hall last year and I wrapped them up in a cute Valentines Bucket I got at Walmart on clearance for 25 cents!!
I love a great deal! ;)
I used Paula Deen's cake ball recipe I found via google.
Is there a better one out there?
or do y'all have any tips for the whole dipping process?
Because I really want to master these things!
